    Hi Christopher,

    I completely agree with your experience:

    “…drafting an outline before writing your content is the best and simplest way to improve your productivity and finish your articles on time.”

    I have similar experience with outlines and its been tremendous. Developing and following an outline helps in eliminating writer’s block and other “obstacles” to smooth writing.

    My best takeaway from this article is your showing how to utilize Trello. I never know this tool has such amazing feature and could provide writers with productive benefits!

    Hello Christopher,

    I think creating an outline is a great way to make your writing more cogent, and that is to the good. Here’s an interesting nugget: the one discipline of writing that requires even more speed than Blogging is Public Relations Writing. Think about it. There are times when a PR professional has to respond to the public or “beat reporters” not in a matter of days but more often in a matter of hours.

    In a situation like that a normal outline won’t be enough–too slow.

    So, what do these PR writers do? They use a simple yet effective tool called a “direction sheet”.

    A basic direction sheet may include the following information:

    Subject of the piece: Is it going to be a new publicity piece, an announcement of employee promotions, or news about a special event such as a fund-raiser or grand opening?

    Format: what form will the information take?

    Objective: What do we hope to accomplish by producing this piece?

    What is the intended audience? Exactly who is our target public?

    The direction sheet is a great tool in helping you lay the ground work for an effective outline. All the questions are quickly answered and prioritized; the outline can then be done swiftly. Copies can be sent to reporter’s Inboxes before lunch–just in time for the evening news deadline.

    Any blogger who wants to write as fast as those PR pros can use the same technique by creating their own Direction Sheet. It’s simple to do. Just write down any questions that you think your post must answer and then prioritize the questions–those are the ones that will make up your outline.
