It might look to be an easy step. Simply open a new file and start typing, right? Nonetheless, it’s rare for this to work for me. I like to get a solid working title and an outline before I write a lot of. John’s written about this earlier, after he found he could accelerate his composing procedure ~600% by creating an outline first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I was repeating the same process for every single new article I work on. Like any good programmer, I realized repeating the same work over and over means that’s probably a good chance for automation.
So I decided to make some templates for myself.
I began by creating a template for the common Ghost blog post arrangement. Since that structure’s particular to me, I also created a template based on how John structures his articles, and another based on a writer whose work I respect.
For each template I’ve created 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 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 each list to view the plain text version, which you can copy to a new file on your favorite writing app.
With this template, I can start by answering each dot line using a few notes about what I should write in that segment. By the time I am done, I’ll have a rough sketch of what the finished piece will look like. This should make it easier to expand my notes into fully-formed paragraphs and cause them to flow to each other well, because I understand the arrangement of the entire piece in advance.
Using the template, I found that my summarizing procedure became more involved. I’d actually planned to do a full rough draft of that 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 another day.
On the flip side, I had over 1600 words written in my outline, along with a solid 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 normal, drafting took less time since I had put myself up for success. Composing the draft was only a matter of taking each chunk of notes from the outline and filling out it into a readable paragraph or 2.
It had been quite a different process to the way I normally do the job, and I had been tempted a couple of times to avoid the additional research or thinking necessary to fill out the outline properly. I often put off these things until I am drafting, and that’s when I should be centered 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 have actually overhauled my outline and study process by using this template. It is a more productive part of my procedure now, and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it’ll lead to better function, too.
