To start ZK (in the midst of a big project), do we at first go "in reverse?"
I'm grateful to this community for supporting me in my first few days and for being so generous with time (and with my multiple posts).
Has anyone done this conversion of a robust amount of digested materials to zettels while in a book-writing project or something of that nature?
I'm working on a book project which already has an outline for each chapter and several documents that could be converted into notes. To make progress, is it a good idea to transfer the outline ideas and documents into zettels? I can see how this would take a ton of time (and am hoping the 10+ days I've taken to understand and start ZK will pay off). And yet, if it helps in the end to connect research to ideas to outlines and generates "productive play" in my ZK, is it worthwhile?
I may have the analogy incorrect since I'm so new. But is it a little like going in reverse, in that you end up converting material you've already digested into zettels? If anyone has tried this, or has reflections on it, I'd love to hear it.
(And I promise to level off with my question asking soon. )
