How specific should I be when documenting my invention ideas?

Record the Details of Your Invention Process

Use detailed text and drawings to document everything you can think of regarding your invention or new product concept. Include design features and benefits, experiments and results, and any changes you make.

Don't allow a lack of artistic ability to prevent you from drawing pictures. Even simple line drawings can help you demonstrate your idea, its use, and a possible construction. Be as detailed and thorough as you can through the entire inventing/documenting process. No part or thought too small to be included in the documentation of your new invention ideas.
