Joshua Harris has posted his own sermon notes on his Preaching Notes series. This is what he has to say on his site:

I basically preach from a manuscript, though I do my best to avoid staring at my notes. I print my notes in 18-point type so they’re easy to read. And I put my notes in a three-ring binder so I can easily flip pages. (In my humble opinion, it’s distracting when guys have loose pages and shuffle them front to back as they preach.)

I use a manuscript because I’ve found that making myself write out every word forces me to think more clearly. It also enables me to get useful feedback on my sermon from other men on our pastoral team before I preach. I do get feedback after I preach, but I much prefer it beforehand!
