Read Critically - But How

Here's formula, which need not be fixed in one's mind. Develop your own strategies in reading and writing. However, its imperative to learn from other's experience for you cannot become him/her (I can do leactureship me! Wrong). But what a way of reading this (following) essayist had! And the implications of practising it which follow 'like a liquid mercury on a sloping thing', to be archaic or not, shall be fertile, hopefully.

I went back to the good nature books that I had read. And I analyzed them. I wrote outlines of whole books - outlines of chapters - so that I could see their structure. And I copied down their transitional sentences or their main sentences or their closing sentences. I especially paid attention to how these writers made transitions between paragraphs and scenes.

@ Kate,

Thanks for paying visits.
I'm happy you've found something interesting and worth reading, which I believe would have cost a great deal of patience :-)

Humble regards!
Umer Toor.
