I came up with a series of questions to help me write my provisional patent application and at the same time be thorough in writing it. I need help in refining it and whittling it down to the core questions that need to be addressed in a ppa. I am having a problem telling the differece between what an embodiment is and what constitute an application. I am also having a problem distinguishing between the function of an invention and the purpose of an invention. Maybe I am over thinking this. Well here is a list of the questions that I came up with.
What is my invention?
What are the different applications of my invention?
What are the different embodiments of invention?
What is the purpose of my invention?
How does my invention work?
How can my invention be used?
How can it be made?
Why does my invention need to be made?
Where will my invention be used?
When will my invention be used?
Who will use my invention?
