biography book report template
It may seem like an easy step. Simply open a new file and begin typing, right? Nonetheless, it’s rare for this to work for me. I like to get a strong working name and an outline before I write a lot of. John’s written about this before, after he found he could speed up his writing process ~600 percent by producing a summary .
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I had been repeating the same process for every single new post I work on. Like any fantastic programmer, I realized repeating the same work over and above means that is probably a good opportunity for automation.
So I decided to create some templates for myself.
I began by creating a template for the most 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 according to a writer whose work I respect.
For every template I’ve made a gist to show you exactly what they look like. They are only Markdown documents, so go right ahead and save them, rename them if you prefer, and copy-and-paste the contents into a new file whenever you’re ready to compose. Click on the”view raw” link on the bottom of each list to observe the plain text version, which you can copy to a new file in your favourite writing app.
With this template, I can begin by answering each dot point with a few notes about what I need to write in that section. From the time I am done, I will have a rough sketch of what the finished piece will look like. This should make it easier to expand my notes into fully-formed paragraphs and cause them to flow into each other well, because I understand the arrangement of the entire piece beforehand.
Using the template, I found that my summarizing procedure became much more involved. I’d really planned to do a complete rough draft of that post in the early hours, but it took me a few hours just to get the outline done, so I set the draft off for a different day.
On the flip side, I had over 1600 words composed in my outline, along with a solid idea about what each section would contain and how they’d work together to create a sense of flow in the article. Though outlining took longer than normal, drafting took less time because I had set myself up for success. Writing the draft was only a matter of taking each chunk of notes out of the outline and filling out it into a readable paragraph or two.
It had been quite a different procedure to how I normally do the job, and that I was tempted a couple of times to avoid the extra research or thinking necessary to fill out the outline properly. I often put off these things until I’m drafting, which is when I should be focused on writing rather. I stuck to it, however, and by the time I got around to writing the draft I was grateful I’d had.
I’ve actually overhauled my outline and study procedure by using this template. It is a more productive part of my process now and makes printing easier. Hopefully it’ll lead to better work, too.
