So, Since Most People Won’t Care…
I absolutely hate the note card method. Everyone is gushing over it like there’s no tomorrow. I’m assuming that’s the case because a lot of people learn by note card method. I can’t learn that way. What I do is read a chunk of text and just memorize the heck out of it. So how do I outline a plot? I do actual outlining. And maybe some free-writing. In a notebook. No note cards. Note cards tend to get lost and you only get to see one card at a time. Sure, you can rearrange them, but that requires space. And I never have space.
Besides, real geeks don’t use note cards. Note cards are for wannabe-yuppies and self-absorbed artists who wear black all the time.
