I’m always making notes. Ever since I was able to hold a pen, I’ve been making notes, songs, writing down ideas.
I can’t tell you how much data I’ve used up by writing notes on my phone ( and two others from before) along with my iPad (rip) and computer.
I wish there was a way for me to find all of them. Although there isn’t, there’s at least my old e-mail which hold quite a few.
One day I’ll go through them, maybe share a few… but for now I just want to talk about how much I love writing.
Not only do I focus better, remember tasks I’d otherwise forget, and come up with creative ideas that I put few to use, but it helps me feel like I’ve accomplished something.
I started out with a pen and paper, even now I do still prefer a pen and paper… but, those ideas that come on around 2 am or so (the most creative I think), or the ideas that come to thought in a dream, are written in my phone.
No matter how you look at it, you’ll see I always write and I most likely date the paper too.
There’s something I find really cool about going to back to things I wrote or drew back in 2013, for instance, because it sparks memory and it sparks a piece of history from my life.
It does for everyone when they discover something they thought they lost.
The way we write tells a story too; why do we curve the g’s and y’s?
Why do we write in cursive or print?
Why do we have sloppy handwriting sometimes and clean as pledge the next?
There are more unique things about ourselves than what we thought…
Even when it comes to something as “simple” as writing.
Thanks for reading. 🔥
