Managing Scrivener Projects and Templates Pt. 6: Newsletter Update

Sciv Newsletter TemplateBack in December I created a Scrivener template for Newsletters which is available for download. The post was rather popular so I wanted to update how I’m using it with readers and whether it’s been beneficial.

I’ve created a 2015 Newsletter project and organized it according to my schedule for this year. I’ve cut back on my newsletter to once a month to allow for more time to write as well as not overburden list members with messages.

The template has been very helpful to me. I’m able to write an edition rather quickly from the template based on regular features. It’s quite simple to create a new newsletter and write content in short order and transfer various sections into my Mailchimp template easily. This lessens my time working in the online template and reduces errors and issues with the content.

During the month, I write various ideas in a new folder to further develop once I’m ready to write the next edition. In this way the template acts as a repository of ideas for each newsletter. Once I’m up to date on the ideas they can be written rather easily.

I’ve found using these kinds of templates very useful for other types of content including blogging, my platform management and even book reviews. Scrivener’s design and functionality have increased the amount of content I can produce across the board and project templates are a major key to my productivity as a whole. With the correct configurations I can write without putting too much energy into preparations so I’m much faster at completing a piece of content.Scriv Newsletter Doc Temp

Additionally, I’m using document templates withing my projects now so I’ve set one up for my newsletter that includes all my regular content, headings and formatting. I’ve posted an updated Newsletter template that includes document templates. To learn about document templates click on the link below.
