I have a book on how to write poetry. It's about 400-500 pages. I've gave it 3-4 layers of activation and made a mind map on an app. I was able to fill in a lot on the mind map. But I want a greater understanding of the topic.
The author's train of thoughts is titled in bold paragraph, a sentence supporting the title, than a few examples.
I get into reading pass the supporting sentence , to further supporting sentences, that reiterate the titles and first sentence, and in depth at times reading shorter examples (poems).
This takes a while. How do I make sure to get out of a chapter in under 10 minutes?
I did so many layers and I feel as if there's nothing more to be learned while also wanting to have full memorization and also feeling as if there's no more information I want from the book.
How do I trust I have all the information I need?
I thought this would go better as I photoread a 200-300 page book and activated it in about 90 minutes. But I did have a reason for activating , the author wanted me to review his book.
Maybe that was the reason?
