It may seem like an easy step. Just open a new document and begin typing, right? Nonetheless, it’s rare for that to work for me. I love to get a strong working title and an outline before I write a lot of. John’s written about this earlier, after he found he could accelerate his writing procedure ~600 percent by producing an outline first.
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I was repeating the same process for every new post I work on. Like any fantastic programmer, I realised repeating the same work over and over means that is probably a fantastic opportunity for automation.
So I decided to make some templates for myself.
I began by creating a template for my most common Ghost blog post arrangement. Since that structure’s particular to me, I created a template based on how John structures his posts, and another according to a writer whose work I admire.
For each template I’ve created a gist to show you what they look like. They’re only Markdown documents, so go 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 the”view raw” link to the bottom of every list to observe the plain text version, which you can copy into a new file in your favourite writing app.
With this template, I can start by answering each dot point with a few notes about what I should write in that segment. From the time I’m done, I will have a rough sketch of what the final piece will look like. This should make it simpler to expand my notes to fully-formed paragraphs and cause them to flow to each other nicely, since I know the structure of the whole piece in advance.
Using the template, I found that my summarizing procedure became more involved. I’d really planned to do a complete rough draft of that post in the early hours, but it took me a couple of hours simply to get the outline done, so that I put the draft off for another day.
On the flip side, I had over 1600 words composed in my outline, along with a solid idea about what each section would comprise and how they would work together to create a feeling of flow from the post. Though outlining took more than normal, drafting took time since I’d put myself up for success. Composing 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 2.
It was quite a different process to how I normally do the job, and I was tempted a few times to avoid the extra research or thinking necessary to fill out the outline properly. I often put these things off till I’m drafting, which is when I should be focused on writing instead. I stuck to it, though, and from the time I got around to writing the draft I was glad I had.
I’ve actually overhauled my outline and research process by applying this template. It is a more effective part of the procedure now, and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it’ll lead to better function, also.
