It may seem to be an easy step. Simply open a new document and start typing, right? Nonetheless, it’s rare for this to work for me. I like to get a strong working title and a summary before I write a lot of. John’s written about this earlier, after he discovered he could accelerate his writing process ~600 percent by creating an outline first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realised I had been repeating the same process for every single new article I work on. Like any good programmer, I realized repeating the exact same work over and above means that’s probably a good chance for automation.
So I decided to create some templates for myself.
I began by developing a template for the common Ghost blog article arrangement. Since that arrangement’s particular to mepersonally, I created a template based on how John constructions his posts, and another based on a writer whose work I respect.
For every template I’ve made a gist to show you what they look like. They’re only Markdown files, so go ahead and save them, rename them if you like, and copy-and-paste the contents into a new file whenever you are ready to write. Click on the”view raw” link to the bottom of each gist to view the plain text version, which you can copy to a new file in your favourite writing program.
With this template, I can begin with answering each dot point using a couple of notes about what I need to write in that section. By the time I am done, I’ll have a rough sketch of what the finished piece will look like. This should make it easier to expand my notes to fully-formed paragraphs and make them flow to each other nicely, since I know the arrangement of the entire piece in advance.
Using the template, I discovered that my summarizing procedure became much more involved. I’d actually planned to perform a complete rough draft of that post in the early hours, but it took me a few hours simply to get the outline done, so I set the draft off for another day.
On the flip side, I’d over 1600 words written in my outline, along with a good idea of what each segment would contain and how they would work together to create a feeling of flow in the post. Even though outlining took longer than normal, drafting took less time because I’d set myself up for success. Writing 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 how I normally do the job, and that I had been tempted a couple of times to avoid the additional research or thinking necessary to complete the outline properly. I often put off these things until I’m drafting, and that’s when I should be focused on writing rather. I stuck to it, though, and from the time I got around to writing the draft I was glad I had.
I’ve actually coined my outline and research process by applying this template. It is a more effective part of the process now, and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it will lead to better work, also.
