General points for writing a manuscript

Once you've finished writing a manuscript, you're ready to move on to the editing stage. Editing is the process of rereading your first draft to look for places that need revision and making changes as needed. Whether you're writing a book, an essay, a short story, or an article for submission to a scholarly journal, your manuscript will need to undergo some revision before you send it to a publisher. Editing involves proofreading, but it goes much further than that. Learning how to edit a manuscript can help you get your writing project ready for submission and publication.

FOUR REASONS TO WRITE A MANUSCRIPT

Write a manuscript to shorten your preparation time.

An abstract is in essence a synopsis of your article. As such, you should be able to write it BEFORE you start writing your manuscript. I know many think the abstract should come at the end of the writing process—a retrospective Cliff Notes version of the manuscript that should encapsulate everything you have already described in the main text. The trouble is, thinking like this will only make the process of writing a manuscript more difficult in the end. This is not to say that an abstract written early in the process won’t change over time; it probably will. But starting with the abstract ensures that those changes will be thoroughly thought out and well-targeted.

Write a manuscript to ensure your sermon is congruent.

Write a manuscript to have a record.

One of the marks of great preaching is that it’s congruent. In fact, I was talking with another pastor friend recently and he said, “I had been preaching for years, but when I started writing a manuscript my sermons got better the next Sunday because they were instantly more congruent.” A good preacher has many high points that catch the attention of and inspire his listeners. A great preacher can grab his listener’s attention and hold it for the duration of the sermon, smoothly leading them from one point to the next. Again, unless you have the mind of Spurgeon, it’s difficult to do this without writing a manuscript.
