And then, you guessed it, more ping pong balls on the rays of the sun you just drew with main subpoints about the main idea. Rinse and repeat. The writing part is really a mental riff I have with myself and researching what others have learned about the subject while typing, fleshing out the skeletal framework of idea patterns previously laid out.
