Creative Plan, Outline
When I write an outline, I do the opposite of what I do when I brainstorm. Instead of writing everything with as much depth and detail as I can, I seek to simplify my thoughts into the fewest possible words. If I can label each thought with only 2 or 3 words, then I know that I fully understand the topic I am going to write about. I often use mathematical operators, symbols, small images and emoticons to simply it further.
I used this outline to present my Creative Plan in class. I then took notes in the outline. I will use it to create a new outline and write my final draft of the Creative Plan.
Idea: It would be interesting to attempt to do an outline with a purely graphic system. The idea will go in the idea log.
