It may look like a simple step. Simply open a new document and begin typing, right? But it’s rare for this to work for me. I love to have a solid working title and an outline before I write too much. John’s written about this before, after he found he could speed up his writing process ~600 percent by creating an outline .
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realised I was repeating the exact same procedure for every single new article I work . Like any fantastic programmer, I realised repeating the exact same work over and above means that is probably a good opportunity for automation.
So I decided to create some templates for myself.
I started by creating a template for the common Ghost blog article arrangement. Since that arrangement’s particular to mepersonally, I also created a template based on how John structures his articles, and another according to a writer whose work I respect.
For each template I’ve created a gist to show you what they look like. They’re just Markdown documents, so go ahead and save them, rename them if you like, and copy-and-paste the contents into a new file whenever you’re ready to compose. Click on the”view raw” link to the bottom of each list to view the plain text version, which you can copy to a new file in your favourite writing app.
With this template, I can start with answering each dot line using a few notes about what I need to write in that segment. By the time I’m 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 cause them to flow into each other nicely, since I understand the structure of the whole piece in advance.
Using the template, I found that my summarizing procedure became more involved. I had actually planned to perform a full rough draft of that post in the morning, but it took me a few hours just to get the outline done, so that I set the draft off for a different day.
On the other hand, I had over 1600 words composed in my outline, along with a good idea about what each section would comprise and how they would work together to create a feeling of flow in the article. Even though outlining took longer than usual, drafting took less time since I had put myself up for victory. Writing the draft was just a matter of taking each chunk of notes out of the outline and filling out it into a readable paragraph or 2.
It was quite a different process to how I normally work, and I had been tempted a few times to avoid the extra research or thinking necessary to fill out the outline correctly. I often put these things off till I’m drafting, and that’s when I should be centered on writing instead. I adhered to it, however, and from the time I got around to writing the draft I was glad I had.
I’ve really coined my outline and research process by applying this template. It’s a more productive part of the process now and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it will lead to better work, too.
