Successful writers employ a variety of structures to get from a glimmer of an idea to a finished book, script, or article. To keep themselves organized, many writers work from an outline, cards on a tackboard, or extensive written notes. Other writers, particularly journalists, may work in tandem with colleagues as they draft an article. Some writers opt to forego these methods and write without a formal structure in a method known as freewriting.
