It may seem to be an easy step. Just open a new file and start typing, right? But it’s rare for that 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 earlier, after he found he could speed up his composing procedure ~600% by producing an outline .
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I was repeating the same process for every new post I work . Like any good programmer, I realised repeating the exact same work over and over means that is probably a fantastic opportunity for automation.
So I decided to make some templates for myself.
I began by creating a template for the most common Ghost blog post arrangement. Since that arrangement’s particular to mepersonally, I created a template based on how John structures his posts, and another based on a writer whose work I respect.
For every template I’ve made a gist to show you what they look like. They are only Markdown documents, so go ahead and save them, rename them if you prefer, and copy-and-paste the contents into a new file whenever you’re ready to compose. Click the”view raw” link to the bottom of each gist to observe the plain text version, which you may copy into a new file in your favourite writing program.
With this template, I can begin by answering each dot point 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 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, since I know the structure of the entire piece in advance.
Using the template, I found that my outlining process became much more involved. I’d really planned to perform a full rough draft of the post in the early hours, but it took me a few hours just to have the outline done, so that I set off the draft for a different day.
On the other hand, I had over 1600 words composed in my outline, and a solid idea of what each segment would contain and how they’d work together to create a sense of flow from the article. Though outlining took more than normal, drafting took time because I had set myself up for victory. Writing the draft was only a matter of taking each chunk of notes out of the outline and filling it out into a readable paragraph or 2.
It was quite a different process to the way I normally work, and that I had been tempted a couple of times to avoid the additional research or thinking necessary to complete the outline properly. I often put these things off until I’m drafting, and that’s when I must be focused on writing rather. I stuck to it, however, and by the time I got around to writing the draft I was grateful I’d had.
I’ve actually overhauled my outline and study process by applying this template. It is a more effective part of my process now, and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it’ll lead to better function, too.
