|🖼️ I’ll often write out the main lesson of a story with a small drawing to go with it, instead of capturing the entirety of the plot. Writing out the conclusion or a key takeaway from it helps me remember other pieces of the story beyond what I’ve captured. This is some of the magic behind sketchnoting.
🔠How can you say what you need to say in the fewest words possible? Can you take away some filler words while still getting the point across?
✂️ Find ways, in the moment, to cut corners. Don’t feel like you have to write out full sentences.
⚠️Give yourself permission to leave out punctuation. If you’re sketchnoting very quickly, focus on the essentials and decide if some things can wait till the end when you’re finishing up.
