“Do you prefer to write notes on paper or on an electronic device?”
That was the suggestion for a new post from WordPress. By the way – who the devil is WordPress?
I have written on the difference between writing when I first started and now.
I may have already told you that I am in the throes of a love affair with my new i-phone. I have had this for only a couple of months and just love it. I use it all the time on my walks as a camera and recently have started making notes on it when I am out. This will take a little getting used to because I ALWAYS have a notebook and pen with me wherever I go. Oh no, perhaps not when I go to the theatre or a movie but certainly when I go to friends houses or go out to dinner. Oh and not in the shower. Pen and wet paper are not a good fit!
My friends are very long suffering about my note taking, only requesting that their names be changed to maintain their privacy. People I know make jokes about the note taking – “Hey Judith write that one down” and “Don’t want to miss that” and “Did you see that?” So they definitely encourage me.
So do I prefer to write notes on paper or on an electronic device? I have to say that my notebook and pen win out. I have a number of these lined up in a drawer in my study (just a fancy name for the spare bedroom) and often go back to look for something. My family tells me it is easier to find things stored on a computer, i-pad or other electronic device but it’s just not the same.
I like to fossick through these notebooks looking for something that I know is there. And the excitement and joy when I find it. And I can spend hours reading the notes I have made and sometimes, when there is no mention of when and where, I wrack my brain trying to remember.
