payroll calendar 2019 template
It may look to be a simple step. Simply open a new file and begin typing, right? But it’s rare for that to work for me. I like to have a solid working title and a summary before I write too much. John’s written about this earlier, after he discovered he could speed up his writing process ~600% by creating an outline first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realised I was repeating the exact same process for every single new article I work on. Like any good programmer, I realised repeating the exact same work over and above means that is probably a good opportunity for automation.
So I decided to create some templates for myself.
I began by creating a template for the common Ghost blog post structure. Since that structure’s particular to me, 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 exactly what they look like. They’re 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 are ready to write. Click on the”view raw” link to the bottom of every list to observe the plain text version, which you can copy into a new file in your favorite writing program.
With this template, I can begin by answering each dot line using a few notes about what I need to 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 cause them to flow to each other well, since I understand the arrangement of the whole piece beforehand.
Using the template, I found that my summarizing procedure became much more involved. I had really planned to do a complete rough draft of the post in the morning, but it took me a couple of hours simply to have 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, along with a solid idea of what each segment would contain and how they would work together to create a sense of flow in the post. Though outlining took longer than normal, drafting took time because I had put myself up for victory. Composing 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 had been quite a different process to the way I normally work, and I was tempted a couple of times to prevent the extra research or thinking necessary to fill out the outline correctly. I often put these things off till I’m drafting, which is when I should be focused on writing instead. I stuck to it, though, and by the time I got around to writing the draft I was glad I had.
I’ve actually coined my outline and research procedure by using this template. It is a more effective part of my process now and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it’ll lead to better work, too.
