It might seem to be a simple step. Simply open a new document and start typing, right? But it’s rare for that to work for me. I love to have a strong working title and an outline before I write too much. John’s written about this earlier, after he discovered he could speed up his writing process ~600 percent by creating an outline .
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I was repeating the same process for every single new article I work . Like any good programmer, I realized repeating the exact same work over and above means that’s probably a good opportunity for automation.
So I decided to make a few templates for myself.
I started by creating a template for my most common Ghost blog post structure. Since that arrangement’s particular to me, I also created a template based on how John constructions his articles, and another according to a writer whose work I respect.
For each template I’ve made a gist to show you what they look like. They are 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 write. 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 in your favourite writing program.
With this template, I can begin with answering each dot line with a couple of notes about what I should write in that section. From the time I’m done, I’ll have a rough sketch of what the final piece will look like. This should make it easier to expand my notes into fully-formed paragraphs and cause them to flow to each other well, because I know the arrangement of the whole piece beforehand.
Using the template, I found that my outlining process became more involved. I had really planned to do a complete rough draft of that post in the early hours, but it took me a couple of hours just to have the outline done, so that I put off the draft for another day.
On the flip side, I’d over 1600 words composed in my outline, and a good idea about what each segment would comprise and how they would work together to create a feeling of flow from the article. Even though outlining took more than normal, drafting took less time since I had set myself up for success. 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 2.
It was quite a different process to the way I normally work, and I was tempted a few times to prevent the extra research or thinking necessary to complete the outline correctly. I frequently put off these things till I am drafting, which is when I should be focused on writing instead. I stuck to it, however, and from the time I got around to writing the draft I was grateful I’d had.
I have actually overhauled my outline and research process by using this template. It’s a more effective part of my procedure now and makes printing easier. Hopefully it will lead to better function, also.
