It may look like a simple step. Simply open a new file and begin typing, right? But it’s rare for that to work for me. I like to get a strong working name and a summary before I write a lot of. John’s written about this earlier, after he found he could speed up his composing process ~600% by producing a summary first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realised I was repeating the same process for every single new post I work on. Like any good programmer, I realized repeating the exact same work over and over means that’s probably a good opportunity for automation.
So I decided to make a few templates for myself.
I started by developing a template for my common Ghost blog article structure. Since that structure’s particular to me, I created a template based on how John structures his articles, and another based on a writer whose work I respect.
For each template I’ve made a gist to show you what they look like. They’re just Markdown files, so go right ahead and save them, rename them if you like, and copy-and-paste the contents into a new file whenever you’re ready to write. Click on the”view raw” link on the bottom of each gist to observe the plain text version, which you may copy into a new file in your favourite writing program.
With this template, I can begin with answering each dot line with a few notes about what I need to write in that segment. From the time I am done, I’ll have a rough sketch of what the final piece will look like. This should make it easier to enlarge my notes to fully-formed paragraphs and make them flow to each other well, because I know the structure of the whole piece beforehand.
Using the template, I discovered that my outlining process became much more involved. I’d actually planned to do a full rough draft of that post in the morning, but it took me a few hours just to have the outline done, so that I put the draft off for another day.
On the other hand, I’d over 1600 words written in my outline, and a good idea about what each section would contain and how they’d work together to create a feeling of flow from the post. Though outlining took longer than usual, drafting took time because I had set myself up for success. Composing the draft was only a matter of taking each chunk of notes from the outline and filling out it into a readable paragraph or 2.
It had been quite a different process to the way I normally work, and that I was tempted a couple of times to prevent the additional research or thinking necessary to fill out the outline correctly. I frequently put off these things till I am drafting, which is when I must be centered on writing instead. I adhered to it, however, and by the time I got around to writing the draft I was grateful I had.
I’ve really coined my outline and research procedure by applying this template. It is a more effective part of my process now and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it’ll lead to better work, too.
