It might seem to be an easy step. Simply open a new document and start typing, right? But it’s rare for this to work for me. I love 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 composing process ~600% by producing an outline first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I was repeating the exact same process for every new post I work on. Like any good programmer, I realized repeating the exact same work over and above means that’s probably a good opportunity for automation.
So I decided to create a few templates for myself.
I began by creating a template for my common Ghost blog post structure. Since that arrangement’s particular to me, I also created a template based on how John constructions his articles, and another according to a writer whose work I admire.
For every template I’ve made a gist to show you what they look like. They’re just Markdown files, 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 each 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 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 enlarge my notes to fully-formed paragraphs and make them flow into each other nicely, because I understand the structure of the whole piece beforehand.
Using the template, I found that my outlining process became much more involved. I had really planned to perform a full rough draft of that post in the morning, but it took me a couple of hours just to have the outline done, so I set the draft off for a different day.
On the flip side, I’d over 1600 words composed in my outline, and a solid idea about what each section would comprise and how they would work together to create a feeling of flow in the article. Even though outlining took more than usual, drafting took time since I’d put myself up for success. Writing the draft was only a matter of taking each chunk of notes out of the outline and filling out it into a readable paragraph or 2.
It had been quite a different process to how I normally work, and I had been tempted a few times to prevent the extra research or thinking required to complete the outline properly. I often put off these things until I am drafting, which is when I should be focused on writing instead. I adhered to it, however, and by the time I got around to writing the draft I was glad I’d had.
I have really overhauled my outline and research process by using this template. It’s a more effective part of my procedure now and makes printing easier. Hopefully it’ll lead to better work, too.
