Loop writing is a technique developed by Peter Elbow that involves underlining striking or important lines. Then those lines become starting points for going even deeper into a topic to gain new insights. It is a great way to develop your line of thinking on any topic, but especially useful when you aren’t sure what direction you want your writing to take.

Inevitably you will write a lot of material that won’t be useful, but loop writing can unearth insights and innovative phrasing that would never make it to the page otherwise.
Depending on where you are out in your writing process, you may or may not need to do the first step.
Loop writing is also an awesome technique to getting the writer to make connections between seemingly unrelated topics. Happy writing!!! [signoff][/signoff]
