It might look to be an easy step. Simply open a new file and begin typing, right? Nonetheless, it’s rare for this to work for me. I like to have a strong working name and a summary before I write too much. John’s written about this earlier, after he discovered he could speed up his composing procedure ~600 percent by creating a summary .
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realised I was repeating the same process for every new post I work on. Like any good programmer, I realized repeating the same work over and above means that’s probably a fantastic chance for automation.
So I decided to create some templates for myself.
I started by creating a template for my common Ghost blog post arrangement. Since that arrangement’s particular to me, I created a template based on how John constructions his posts, and another according to a writer whose work I respect.
For each template I’ve made 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 like, and copy-and-paste the contents into a new file whenever you’re ready to write. Click on the”view raw” link on the bottom of each gist 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 with answering each dot point with a few notes about what I need to write in that section. From the time I am done, I will have a rough sketch of what the final piece will look like. This should make it easier to expand my notes into fully-formed paragraphs and make them flow to each other nicely, since I know the arrangement of the whole piece in advance.
Using the template, I found that my outlining process became much more involved. I had really planned to do a complete rough draft of the post in the early hours, but it took me a few hours simply to get the outline done, so that I set the draft off for another day.
On the other hand, I’d over 1600 words composed in my outline, and a solid idea about what each section would comprise and how they’d work together to create a sense of flow in the post. Even though outlining took longer than normal, drafting took time because I’d put myself up for success. 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 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 prevent the additional research or thinking required to fill out the outline properly. I frequently put off these things until I am drafting, and that’s when I should be centered on writing instead. I adhered to it, however, and from the time I got around to writing the draft I was grateful I had.
I’ve really coined my outline and research process by applying this template. It is a more productive part of my procedure now, and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it will lead to better function, too.
