Lit notes are the optional middle step of the 101.006 Zettelkasten - ZK workflow.

We take the 101.007 Zettelkasten - RAW NOTES and distill them into more consumable chunks of content, referencing the source data.

Usually the middle step between the RAW NOTE and a PERMANENT NOTE, but could be taken directly from an article or video is there is no need to do the long form rambling note first.

Lit note rules

  • LIT NOTES (as with all notes) should have a reference block at the top with link back to the RAW NOTES, and the same author/source links.
  • LIT NOTES should be brief and in your own words, as this content will end up almost verbatim in the Miki No plagiarism allowed.
