Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account for Thursday’s Twitter Takeover. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week young adult author Emily Mills will be taking over our Twitter account.
Emily Mills is the author of The Art of Visual Notetaking. Improve your bullet journals, to-do lists, class notes, and everything in between with The Art of Visual Notetaking and its unique approach to taking notes in the twenty-first century. Visual notetaking is the perfect skill for journaling, class lectures, conferences, and any other time that retaining information is key. Also referred to as sketchnoting , visual notetaking is ideal for documenting processes, planning projects, outlining ideas, and capturing information. And as you’ll learn in The Art of Visual Notetaking , this approach doesn’t require advanced drawing or hand-lettering skills; anyone can learn how to use simple lines, connectors, shapes, and text to take dynamic notes.
In The Art of Visual Notetaking , aspiring sketchnoters and journalers will find helpful “Getting Started” pages of icons and badges for common note-taking purposes, with tips and encouragement for creating you own unique icons . You’ll go on to discover instruction and how-to techniques, tips, and tutorials that focus on visual notetaking for different settings , from a business meeting, workshop, or convention, to a college lecture or sermon. Expert instruction from a professional sketchnote artist and educator demonstrates how to visually arrange and compile ideas, focal points, and key concepts.
