It might seem to be an easy step. Just 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 a lot of. John’s written about this before, after he discovered he could accelerate his writing process ~600 percent by producing a summary .
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realised I was repeating the same process for every single new post I work on. Like any fantastic programmer, I realized repeating the same work over and above means that is probably a fantastic chance for automation.
So I decided to create a few templates for myself.
I started by developing a template for my common Ghost blog post structure. Since that structure’s particular to mepersonally, I also 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 what they look like. They are 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 compose. Click the”view raw” link on the bottom of every list to view the plain text version, which you may copy into a new file in your favourite writing program.
With this template, I can start with answering each dot line using a few notes about what I should write in that section. From the time I’m done, I will have a rough sketch of what the finished 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, because I understand the structure of the entire piece in advance.
Using the template, I found that my outlining process became much more involved. I’d really planned to do a full rough draft of that post in the morning, but it took me a couple of hours just to get the outline done, so I put off the draft for another day.
On the other hand, I had over 1600 words composed in my outline, along with a good idea of what each segment would contain and how they’d work together to create a sense of flow from the article. Even though outlining took longer than normal, drafting took less time because I had set myself up for success. Writing the draft was only a matter of taking each chunk of notes out of the outline and filling it out into a readable paragraph or two.
It was quite a different procedure to the way I normally work, and that I had been tempted a few times to avoid the extra research or thinking necessary to fill out the outline correctly. I frequently put these things off till I am drafting, and that’s when I must 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’d had.
I’ve really coined my outline and research process by applying this template. It’s a more effective part of the procedure now, and makes printing easier. Hopefully it will lead to better function, too.
