resume cover letter template word
It might seem to be a simple step. Simply open a new file and start typing, right? Nonetheless, it’s rare for this to work for me. I like to have a strong working title and a summary before I write a lot of. John’s written about this before, after he found he could accelerate his writing process ~600 percent by creating an outline first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realised I had been repeating the same procedure for every new post I work on. Like any good programmer, I realised repeating the same work over and over means that’s probably a good opportunity for automation.
So I decided to create some templates for myself.
I started by developing a template for the common Ghost blog article arrangement. Since that arrangement’s particular to me, I created a template based on how John structures his articles, and another according to a writer whose work I admire.
For every template I’ve made a gist to show you exactly what they look like. They are only Markdown documents, so go right ahead and save them, 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 on the bottom of every gist to view the plain text version, which you can copy to a new file on your favorite writing program.
With this template, I can start by answering each dot point with a couple of notes about what I should write in that segment. By the time I am done, I will have a rough sketch of what the final piece will look like. This should make it simpler to expand my notes into fully-formed paragraphs and cause them to flow into each other well, because I understand the arrangement of the whole piece in advance.
Using the template, I found that my summarizing procedure became much more involved. I’d really planned to do a full rough draft of the post in the early hours, but it took me a couple of hours simply to have the outline done, so I put the draft off for a different day.
On the flip side, I’d over 1600 words written in my outline, along with a good idea of what each section would comprise and how they would work together to create a feeling of flow in the post. Though outlining took more than usual, drafting took less time since I had set myself up for success. 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 2.
It had been quite a different procedure to the way I normally work, and that I had been tempted a couple of times to prevent the additional research or thinking required to fill out the outline correctly. I frequently put these things off till I’m drafting, and that’s when I should be focused on writing instead. I adhered to it, though, and by the time I got around to writing the draft I was grateful I had.
I’ve actually coined my outline and research process by using this template. It’s a more productive part of my procedure now, and makes printing easier. Hopefully it will lead to better function, also.
