microsoft office invoice template
It may seem like a simple step. Simply open a new document and begin typing, right? But it’s rare for that to work for me. I love to have a strong working name and a summary before I write too much. John’s written about this before, after he found he could accelerate his composing procedure ~600% by producing an outline first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realised I had been repeating the same process for every new article I work on. Like any good programmer, I realised 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 started by creating a template for the most common Ghost blog article arrangement. Since that arrangement’s particular to me, I created a template based on how John constructions his articles, and another based on a writer whose work I admire.
For each template I’ve created a gist to show you what they look like. They’re only Markdown documents, so go ahead and save , rename them if you prefer, and copy-and-paste the contents into a new file whenever you are ready to write. Click the”view raw” link to the bottom of every list to view the plain text version, which you may copy into a new file on your favourite writing app.
With this template, I can start by answering each dot line with a couple of 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 arrangement of the entire piece in advance.
Using the template, I discovered that my summarizing procedure became 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 simply to have the outline done, so I put off the draft for a different day.
On the flip side, I had over 1600 words written in my outline, along with a solid idea about what each section would contain and how they would work together to create a feeling of flow in the article. Even though outlining took longer than normal, drafting took less time because I had set myself up for victory. Writing the draft was just a matter of taking each chunk of notes out of the outline and filling out it into a readable paragraph or 2.
It was quite a different procedure to the way I normally do the job, and I had been tempted a couple of times to avoid the extra research or thinking necessary to complete the outline correctly. I often put these things off until I am drafting, and that’s when I should be centered on writing rather. I adhered to it, however, and from the time I got around to writing the draft I was glad I had.
I have really coined my outline and study process by applying this template. It is a more effective part of the procedure now, and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it’ll lead to better function, also.
