It may look like a simple step. Simply open a new document and begin typing, right? But it’s rare for this to work for me. I like to get a solid working title and an outline before I write a lot of. John’s written about this before, after he discovered he could accelerate his writing process ~600% by creating an outline first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I was repeating the same procedure for every new article I work . Like any good programmer, I realized repeating the same work over and above means that is probably a good chance for automation.
So I decided to create some templates for myself.
I began by creating a template for my common Ghost blog article structure. Since that arrangement’s particular to mepersonally, 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 only Markdown files, so go right ahead and save them, rename them if you like, and copy-and-paste the contents into a new file whenever you’re ready to compose. Click the”view raw” link on the bottom of every list to view the plain text version, which you may copy into a new file on your favourite writing program.
With this template, I can begin with answering each dot point with a few notes about what I should write in that segment. By the time I am done, I will have a rough sketch of what the finished piece will look like. This should make it simpler to expand my notes to fully-formed paragraphs and make them flow to each other well, since I know the arrangement of the entire piece in advance.
Using the template, I discovered that my outlining process became much more involved. I had actually planned to do a full rough draft of that post in the early hours, but it took me a couple of hours just to get the outline done, so I put off the draft for a different day.
On the flip side, I’d over 1600 words composed in my outline, along with a good idea about what each segment would comprise and how they would work together to create a sense of flow from the article. Even though outlining took more than usual, drafting took time since I had set myself up for success. 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 had been quite a different process to the way I normally do the job, and that I had been tempted a couple of times to avoid the extra research or thinking required to fill out the outline correctly. I often put off these things until I’m drafting, and that’s when I should 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 have really overhauled my outline and research procedure by applying this template. It is a more productive part of the process now, and makes printing easier. Hopefully it’ll lead to better function, too.
