PLAN YOUR GUIDE

 

Writing a guide to share your fix with others means more than just learning how to fix it and writing it down.

You probably already know how to fix some things that others might not. How did you learn to fix it? What process did you go through?

To share your fix with others, ask yourself a few questions:

  • What tools, parts, or materials will be needed?
  • How many steps are required? Break your fix down into a series of simple steps that anyone could follow. Each step should communicate a single action or instruction. Try to estimate the total number of steps from beginning to end.
  • How long will it take? How long might it take someone who is doing it for the first time?
  • Is there anything that might seem challenging about this fix that could discourage others from trying it? How can you address those challenges?
