It might look to be an easy step. Simply open a new file and start typing, right? But it’s rare for this to work for me. I like to have a strong 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 percent by creating an outline .
As I wrote an outline for a post this week I realized I was repeating the same procedure for every single new post I work . Like any fantastic programmer, I realised repeating the same work over and above means that is probably a good opportunity for automation.
So I decided to create some templates for myself.
I began by developing a template for the most common Ghost blog article structure. 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 every 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 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 gist to observe the plain text version, which you may copy to a new file on your favourite writing program.
With this template, I can start by answering each dot point using a couple of notes about what I need to write in that segment. By 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 enlarge my notes to fully-formed paragraphs and cause them to flow to each other nicely, because I know the arrangement of the entire piece beforehand.
Using the template, I found that my summarizing procedure became more involved. I had really planned to do a full rough draft of that post in the early hours, but it took me a few hours just to have the outline done, so that I set the draft off for another day.
On the other hand, I had over 1600 words written 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 longer than normal, drafting took less time because I had put myself up for victory. 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 how 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 properly. I often put these things off till I am drafting, and that’s when I should be focused on writing rather. I stuck to it, however, and by the time I got around to writing the draft I was grateful I had.
I’ve actually overhauled my outline and study procedure by using this template. It is a more effective part of the process now and makes drafting easier. Hopefully it’ll lead to better function, too.
