It may look to be a simple step. Simply open a new file and begin typing, right? But it’s rare for this to work for me. I like to have a solid working title and an outline before I write too much. John’s written about this before, after he discovered he could speed up his composing procedure ~600 percent by creating a summary first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realised I had been repeating the same process for every new post I work on. Like any good programmer, I realised repeating the same work over and above means that is probably a fantastic opportunity for automation.
So I decided to create a few templates for myself.
I started by creating a template for my common Ghost blog post arrangement. Since that structure’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 respect.
For every template I’ve created a gist to show you what they look like. They’re 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 are ready to write. Click the”view raw” link on the bottom of every gist to view the plain text version, which you may copy to a new file in your favourite writing program.
With this template, I can start with answering each dot line with a few notes about what I should write in that section. 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 expand my notes to fully-formed paragraphs and make them flow into each other well, because I know the structure of the entire piece in advance.
Using the template, I discovered that my outlining process became much 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 simply to get the outline done, so that I set the draft off for a different day.
On the other hand, I had over 1600 words written in my outline, and a solid idea of what each segment would contain and how they’d work together to create a feeling of flow from the post. Though outlining took more than normal, drafting took less time because I’d put myself up for success. Composing 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 two.
It was quite a different procedure to the way I normally work, and that I had been tempted a couple of times to avoid the extra research or thinking required to fill out the outline properly. I frequently put off these things till I’m drafting, and that’s when I should be centered on writing instead. I adhered to it, though, and from the time I got around to writing the draft I was grateful I’d had.
I’ve actually coined my outline and research procedure by using this template. It is a more productive part of my process now, and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it will lead to better work, also.
