If there is anything I want to remember, I write it down. I had started an editorial calendar in the purple notebook in this picture.
I finished working in it one day and “put it up.” Okay, let’s be real. I put it in a tote bag that I use a lot.
The tote bag got moved. I have another one I can use. (They call me the bag lady for a reason.) No big deal.
At least, no big deal until I started looking for that notebook.
“Just get another notebook. It’s not like you don’t have enough.”
“Just use your phone like everyone else does. ” (No, nobody really said either of these to me.)
But I needed that notebook because of some things I had written in it. Plus, another notebook was with it. My crochet notebook. I really needed that one too.
And I’ve tried just keeping things in my phone. It doesn’t work for me. There’s something about the contact of pen with paper that I find necessary.
This morning, I saw the original tote bag with both notebooks inside. I feel like I’ve been found.
Or at least part of my brain has been.
Question of the day: Do you write everything down on paper or put it in your phone? Why?
I am a pen to paper kind of gal. There is a release that happens when I take my thoughts through my body and on to paper. Its therapeutic. I can have a continuous flow of information without interruption or constantly back spacing for errors. Pen and paper all the way!
I am 4,000% a paper person. If I put it in my phone, it’s lost for eternity. Also, I’m a little shocked at how much our tote bag tendencies match up.
