It may seem to be a simple step. Just open a new document and begin typing, right? But it’s rare for this to work for me. I love to get a strong working title and a summary before I write a lot of. John’s written about this earlier, after he found he could accelerate his writing process ~600% by creating a summary first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I was repeating the exact same procedure for every new article I work . Like any good programmer, I realized repeating the exact same work over and above means that is probably a fantastic 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 article arrangement. Since that arrangement’s particular to me, I also created a template based on how John structures his posts, and another according to a writer whose work I respect.
For every template I’ve created a gist to show you what they look like. They’re only Markdown documents, so go right ahead and save them, rename them if you prefer, and copy-and-paste the contents into a new file whenever you’re ready to write. Click the”view raw” link on the bottom of every list to view the plain text version, which you may copy to a new file on your favourite writing program.
With this template, I can begin with answering each dot line using a few notes about what I need to write in that section. From the time I’m done, I’ll have a rough sketch of what the finished piece will look like. This should make it easier to enlarge my notes to fully-formed paragraphs and cause them to flow into each other well, because I know the structure of the entire piece beforehand.
Using the template, I discovered that my summarizing procedure became much more involved. I’d really planned to do a complete rough draft of the post in the early hours, but it took me a few hours simply to have the outline done, so I put the draft off for another day.
On the flip side, I had over 1600 words written in my outline, along with a good idea about what each section would contain and how they would work together to create a sense of flow in the post. Even though outlining took longer 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 from the outline and filling it out into a readable paragraph or two.
It was quite a different process to how I normally do the job, and I had been tempted a few times to avoid the additional research or thinking necessary to complete the outline correctly. I frequently put these things off until I am drafting, and that’s when I must be focused on writing rather. I stuck to it, though, and from the time I got around to writing the draft I was grateful I had.
I’ve really coined my outline and study procedure by using this template. It’s a more productive part of the process now, and makes printing easier. Hopefully it will lead to better work, too.
