It may seem like an easy step. Just open a new document and start typing, right? But it’s rare for that to work for me. I love to get a strong working title and an outline before I write too much. John’s written about this earlier, after he found he could accelerate his composing process ~600 percent by producing a summary first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I had been repeating the same procedure for every new article I work on. Like any good programmer, I realised repeating the exact same work over and above means that is probably a fantastic chance for automation.
So I decided to make a few templates for myself.
I began by developing a template for the most common Ghost blog article structure. Since that structure’s particular to me, I also created a template based on how John constructions 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 are just Markdown files, so go right ahead and save , 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 into a new file in your favorite writing app.
With this template, I can start by answering each dot line with a few notes about what I should write in that segment. By the time I’m done, I will 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 into each other nicely, since I understand the structure of the entire piece beforehand.
Using the template, I found that my outlining process became more involved. I had really planned to do a full rough draft of the 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 another day.
On the other hand, I’d over 1600 words written in my outline, along with a good idea about what each section would contain and how they’d work together to create a sense of flow from the article. Though outlining took longer than normal, drafting took time because I’d set myself up for victory. Composing the draft was only a matter of taking each chunk of notes from the outline and filling it out into a readable paragraph or two.
It had been quite a different procedure to how I normally do the job, and I was tempted a few times to prevent the extra research or thinking necessary to fill out the outline properly. I often put off these things till I am drafting, and that’s when I must be centered on writing rather. I adhered to it, though, and from the time I got around to writing the draft I was grateful I had.
I’ve actually overhauled my outline and research process by using this template. It is a more effective part of my procedure now, and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it will lead to better function, also.
