Each week as I study, I take a lot of notes. Some of those notes I type into Evernote on my computer, and some of them I sketch out. The stuff that really stands out to me, the important quotes, and image-heavy ideas go down on paper. I love using sketchnotes as a way to organize ideas. It helps me stay concrete because I’m forced to think of how I can draw this idea and it’s easy to remember later as I begin putting an outline together. After I take all my notes, I make an outline and start writing.
