It may look like a simple step. Simply open a new file and start typing, right? Nonetheless, it’s rare for that to work for me. I love to get a strong working name 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 producing an outline first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I had been repeating the same process for every new article I work on. Like any good programmer, I realized repeating the same work over and over means that is probably a good chance for automation.
So I decided to make some templates for myself.
I began by creating a template for the most common Ghost blog article arrangement. Since that arrangement’s particular to me, I also created a template based on how John structures his articles, and another based on a writer whose work I admire.
For every template I’ve created a gist to show you what they look like. They’re only Markdown files, so go right 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 every gist to view the plain text version, which you can copy to a new file on your favorite writing app.
With this template, I can begin with answering each dot point with a few notes about what I need to 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 simpler to expand my notes to fully-formed paragraphs and make them flow to each other well, since I know the structure of the whole piece in advance.
Using the template, I found that my outlining process became more involved. I had really planned to perform a complete rough draft of that post in the early hours, but it took me a couple of hours simply to have the outline done, so that I put the draft off for another day.
On the flip side, I’d over 1600 words written in my outline, along with a good idea about what each section would comprise and how they’d work together to create a sense of flow in the post. Though outlining took longer than normal, drafting took less time since I had set myself up for victory. 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 had been quite a different process to the way I normally do the job, and I was tempted a couple of times to avoid the additional research or thinking required to fill out the outline correctly. I frequently put off these things until I am drafting, which is when I must be focused on writing rather. I adhered to it, though, 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 process by applying this template. It’s a more effective part of the process now, and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it’ll lead to better work, too.
