Use at least 3 COLORS in the center and many different COLORS for emphasis, structure, creativity and fun!  4. Draw some thick, curved connected lines from the picture, one for each of the main ideas you have  5. Name each of these ideas and, if you want, draw a little picture – This uses both sides of your brain. Words are underlined throughout. This is because they are key words and the underlining, as in normal notes, shows their importance.  6.
