Write down everything you can think of or find during your canvas by dropmock review .
Don’t worry about whether or not it makes sense. Don’t worry about how well it’s
written. Don’t worry about that it doesn’t fit with anything else. Just write down
everything you can possibly think of concerning the topic of your report.
Now, I want to give you one of the most invaluable brainstorming exercises you'll
ever use for generating ideas for your report. I call it " alphabetizingThis step doesn't require a lot of explanation, but let me go ahead and just touch
on this a bit for clarification purposes.
There are two basic waysto "arrange" your ideas once you have them all jotted
down in other words "organize" them so they make sense. These two ways are
"sequentially" and "canvas by dropmock review". Sequentially :
That is, you would organize your ideas in chronological steps. In any kind of
"howto" information there is a logical order in which steps occur. You would
simply outline your report based on what comes first and then what comes
after that. Step 1 is... Step 2 is... Step 3 is...
Now, as a rule of thumb, I recommend that you keep the total number of
steps to something in SINGLE DIGITS. No more than 9 steps. Anything more
than that could be viewed as "too much work" in the eyes of your readers.
So, organize all of your ideas in 9 or less steps, beginning with the step that
comes first and ending with the step that comes last. Systematically: The other option is to organize things "systematically". In other words, you'd
group ideas together based on their logical relationship to each other.
Example 1 : If your canvas by dropmock review is “ 5 Keys to Saving Your Marriage Now ”, then
that’s the basic framework for your outline. You divide things into sections
or parts, whatever you want to call them, one for each of the 5 keys. Key
#1 is a section. Key #2 is a section. Key #3 is a section. And so forth. All
of your ideas would fall into one of your 5 keys.
Example 2 : If you have a LOT of different ideas, such as “ 101
Homeschooling Tips for FirstTime Parents ”, then find 59 main topics to
group them into. For example, “tips for finding the right curriculum”, “tips
for planning field trips,” “tips for creating a learning environment,” “tips for
social interaction” and so forth. Note : Now, let me give you a recommendation on arranging ideas
that I've found to be very important over the years.
While you want ALL of your report to be quality content that's
useful to your customer, let's face it, some points are stronger than others. There are some things you'll be sharing that are
just better or more important or less known than others. It's
important that you fire these FIRST andLAST.
That is, you want your best work (if possible, understandably
"steps" come in whatever order they appear) to be in the first
few pages and then finish strong in the last few pages. If you
have any content that's "weaker" than the rest, then you'll want
to include it somewhere in the middle if it's important enough
to share at all. It's not that you're trying to "hide" anything,
it's simply that you want to minimize your weaknesses and
showcase your strengths.
That same rule of thumb can be used with any "subideas" you
have for each of your main points (your "ways" or "steps",
etc.): your strongest subideas come first and last with the
others mixed in the middle somewhere.
