I always have a notepad on hand in my purse. When I don’t, I use anything on hand- reciepts, tissue, diapers…
Ideas (brilliant ones I assure you) come to me always at the worst times. During a pap, while driving, lineups for coffee, so I tend to recite in my head over and over my thought until I get a moment to jot them down.
Lately, I have been using the Notes App on my iPhone instead since I almost always have my phone on me. You would think this would be helpful but overall the results have been less than stellar. Since it is somewhat obnoxious typing via phone, I try to be succinct. Not my strong suit on the best of days and worse when there is auto spellcheck at work also.
To give you an idea of my woes, here are some of my e-notes.
- how fit car seat camel
- lost girls
- 5117/135 earden (hopefully this is not a passcode to something)
- Klik Denmark
- hitchhiking compassionate soul vampire (pretty sure this is a line from Fringe but not certain)
- bunk gillie
- one dino in legs all else fall
Note to self, notes to self do not work when self has no clue what self is talking about.
