How do you make notes?


WHEN it comes to writing I have my own ways of recording my thoughts and stories, characters, plot ideas and all the rest of my minds jibber jabber. I use my sacred BlackBerry (now on the endangered list) for writing jokes, story ideas, and all sorts of random musings that stick in my mind. It’s not quite a pen and a pad, but it’s faster and easier to carry.

Having said that I also have a Red & Black notebook (native to the UK) which I use for all hand written notes on an array of topics which I mainly use at bed time. Now and again I’ll use the laptop but not that often.

So fellow writers, what’s your method?

      1. To be honest I think Waterstones were selling them off one day. The tag mentioned Vincent van Gogh having one which is probably complete rubbish but I got suckered anyway.

  1. I use a small notebook and bigger binders to keep all of our stories and novel chapters together. I also make tons on notes on my computer, and then write down the exact same notes just in case the computer loses everything! I always copy and save everything twice! 🙂

  2. I always find that I take the best notes mentally. I just keep them in my head. I know it probably doesn’t work for most writers, but I never want to put thoughts into words until they are formed perfectly. I have a literary blog, so I’m always interested in the writing processes of other writers. Great post!

Please, type what you think
