Once your note cards are in order, use them to create an outline to follow as you
write your paper.

Begin with a working outline, arranging your details in groups without using
numbers or letters.

            Main idea from first group of cards:
              First point (note card text)
                     Supporting detail (note card text)

            Main idea from second group of cards:
              First point (note card text))
                       Supporting detail (note card text)
            Etc. . . .
                      Gathering your information

You may then choose to create a formal outline, with Roman numerals and
capital letters.
              I. Main idea from first group of cards
                 A. First point
                         1. Supporting detail

Either type of outline will give you a map to follow as you write the first
