Outlining chapters is a time-honored way to engage with and really dissect the reading Outlining: You may want to develop your notes into an outline. Outlining chapters is a time-honored way to engage with and really dissect the reading. Some experts suggest that outlining is the smart way to take notes because the outline structure enables you to be selective and not repeat the entire text in your notes. To outline, write down the subheadings and the main topic of each paragraph. "I read the material and outline it so that I can read over my notes a couple of times before the exam," said one student. "There are very few people who can read a textbook and retain all the detailed information they read, and I'm not one of them. I have to put in the time, but it always pays off."

Review the A&P chapter, start reading and outlining chapters


Back then, I had been keeping notes thinking I would write a book about my battle with booze and journey to sobriety. In fact, I had promised myself I’d go through all my notes and start outlining chapters, etc. while I recovered from surgery. The note I found today was clearly a lousy attempt at starting that organization.We booked a house for a much-needed weeklong vacation, and we’ll be heading there soon. A house on the coast, with a private beach, a lovely-looking deck, and more bedrooms than we need. We’ll be with friends, with a 4:2 adult to child ratio, which in my opinion is perfect. And so… I could have some time to write! And yet. I wonder if I should be thinking this way. Part of me has visions of sitting outdoors, looking out at the ocean, scrunching my bare toes in the grass, sipping a Caipirinha, jotting down notes or outlining chapters while the kids nap or play on the beach, and it looks perfect to me. We’ve had a trying last few weeks, and mental escape to a place in which I can create the realities is appealing. (Albeit within the context of 19th century India.) But part of me (and a large part of my dear husband J) feels that if I consider writing my work, or one of my works, and if the point of this trip is vacation, then I should vacate. As in, not write. Not bring my computer. Not attempt to accomplish anything. Which, as a good friend with similar tendencies to mine points out, is an accomplishment in itself, and therefore should be satisfying.
