calendar template to print
It may look to be a simple step. Simply open a new file and start typing, right? But it’s rare for this to work for me. I like to get a strong working name and a summary before I write too much. John’s written about this earlier, after he discovered he could accelerate his composing procedure ~600% by producing a summary .
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realised I was repeating the exact same process for every single new article I work on. Like any good programmer, I realised repeating the same work over and above 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 post structure. 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 admire.
For every template I’ve created a gist to show you exactly what they look like. They are 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 on the”view raw” link on the bottom of each list to view the plain text version, which you can copy to a new file on your favorite writing program.
With this template, I can begin by answering each dot point using a couple of notes about what I need to write in that segment. By 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 nicely, since I understand the arrangement of the entire piece beforehand.
Using the template, I discovered that my outlining process became more involved. I had actually planned to do a complete rough draft of that post in the morning, but it took me a couple of hours just to get the outline done, so I put the draft off for another day.
On the other hand, I’d over 1600 words composed in my outline, and a solid idea of what each segment would comprise and how they’d work together to create a feeling of flow in the article. Though outlining took more than usual, drafting took time because I’d 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 two.
It was quite a different process to the way I normally work, and that I had been tempted a few times to prevent the extra research or thinking necessary to complete the outline correctly. I often put off these things until I am drafting, which is when I must be focused on writing instead. I adhered to it, however, and by the time I got around to writing the draft I was grateful I’d had.
I’ve really overhauled my outline and study procedure by using this template. It is a more productive part of the process now, and makes printing easier. Hopefully it’ll lead to better work, too.
