It may look to be an easy step. Just open a new file and begin typing, right? But it’s rare for this to work for me. I like to have a strong working name and a summary before I write a lot of. John’s written about this earlier, after he found he could accelerate his writing procedure ~600% by creating an outline first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I was repeating the same process for every new article I work on. Like any fantastic programmer, I realised repeating the same work over and over means that is probably a good chance for automation.
So I decided to create some templates for myself.
I started by developing a template for my common Ghost blog post arrangement. Since that arrangement’s particular to me, I created a template based on how John structures his posts, and another based on a writer whose work I respect.
For every template I’ve made a gist to show you exactly what they look like. They’re just Markdown files, so go ahead and save them, rename them if you prefer, and copy-and-paste the contents into a new file whenever you are ready to compose. Click the”view raw” link on the bottom of every gist to view the plain text version, which you may copy to a new file in your favourite writing program.
With this template, I can start by answering each dot point using a few notes about what I should write in that segment. 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 enlarge my notes into fully-formed paragraphs and make them flow to each other well, since I know the structure of the entire piece in advance.
Using the template, I discovered that my outlining process became more involved. I had really planned to do a full rough draft of the post in the early hours, but it took me a few hours simply to have the outline done, so I set off the draft for another day.
On the flip side, I’d over 1600 words written in my outline, and a good idea of what each segment would comprise and how they would work together to create a feeling of flow in the post. Though outlining took more than usual, drafting took time since I had set myself up for victory. Composing the draft was just a matter of taking each chunk of notes from the outline and filling it out into a readable paragraph or two.
It had been quite a different process to how I normally do the job, and that I was tempted a couple of times to prevent the additional research or thinking necessary to fill out the outline properly. I frequently put off these things until I am drafting, and that’s when I must be focused on writing rather. I stuck to it, though, and from the time I got around to writing the draft I was grateful I had.
I have actually coined my outline and study process by using this template. It is a more effective part of the process now, and makes printing easier. Hopefully it will lead to better function, too.
