It may seem 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 love to have a strong working name and an outline before I write a lot of. John’s written about this before, after he discovered he could accelerate his composing procedure ~600% by producing an outline .
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realised I was repeating the same process for every new post I work on. Like any fantastic programmer, I realized repeating the exact same work over and above means that’s probably a fantastic chance for automation.
So I decided to create some templates for myself.
I began by developing a template for the common Ghost blog post structure. Since that structure’s particular to me, I created a template based on how John constructions his posts, 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 are only 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 the”view raw” link to the bottom of every gist to view the plain text version, which you may copy into a new file on your favourite writing app.
With this template, I can start with answering each dot point using a few notes about what I need to write in that section. From 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 into each other well, because I know the arrangement of the entire piece in advance.
Using the template, I discovered that my outlining process became much more involved. I’d actually planned to do a full rough draft of that post in the morning, but it took me a few hours just to have the outline done, so I put off the draft for another day.
On the flip side, I had over 1600 words written in my outline, along with a solid idea of what each section would contain and how they would work together to create a feeling of flow in the post. Even though outlining took more than normal, drafting took time since I’d put myself up for victory. Writing the draft was only a matter of taking each chunk of notes out of the outline and filling out it into a readable paragraph or two.
It was quite a different procedure to how I normally work, and that I had been tempted a couple of times to avoid the additional research or thinking required to complete the outline correctly. I often put these things off till I am drafting, which is when I should be centered on writing rather. I stuck to it, however, and from the time I got around to writing the draft I was glad I’d had.
I’ve actually coined my outline and research process by using this template. It’s a more productive part of my procedure now, and makes printing easier. Hopefully it will lead to better work, too.
