It might look like a simple step. Just open a new document and begin typing, right? But it’s rare for that to work for me. I love to have a solid working name and a summary before I write too much. John’s written about this earlier, after he found he could speed up his composing process ~600% by producing a summary .
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I was repeating the same procedure for every new post I work on. Like any fantastic programmer, I realized 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 began by developing a template for the common Ghost blog post arrangement. Since that structure’s particular to me, I also created a template based on how John structures his posts, and another according to a writer whose work I admire.
For each template I’ve made a gist to show you what they look like. They’re only Markdown files, so go ahead and save , rename them if you prefer, and copy-and-paste the contents into a new file whenever you are ready to write. Click the”view raw” link to the bottom of each list to view the plain text version, which you may copy to a new file on your favourite writing program.
With this template, I can begin by answering each dot point with a couple of notes about what I need to write in that segment. From 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 into fully-formed paragraphs and cause them to flow to each other nicely, because I know the arrangement of the whole piece beforehand.
Using the template, I discovered that my outlining process became more involved. I had really planned to do a complete rough draft of that post in the morning, but it took me a couple of hours just to have the outline done, so that I put off the draft for a different day.
On the flip side, I had over 1600 words written in my outline, and a solid idea about what each segment would comprise and how they’d work together to create a feeling of flow from the post. Even though outlining took longer than normal, drafting took less time because 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 out it into a readable paragraph or 2.
It was quite a different procedure to how I normally work, and that I had been tempted a few times to avoid the additional research or thinking necessary to complete the outline correctly. I frequently put these things off until I am drafting, and that’s when I must be centered 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 really overhauled my outline and research procedure by applying this template. It’s a more effective part of my process now and makes printing easier. Hopefully it will lead to better work, too.
