I’m trying something new! I’ve been a fan of and devoted user of Moleskine notebooks for years. Before I found Evernote I used my Moleskines for everything – notes about business, writing scenes, jotting down ideas, you name it. There is even a stack of used Moleskines, carefully indexed, on the top shelf of my closet. But since Evernote and I became BFFs, my Moleskines haven’t been seeing as much attention.
I still use my Moleskines for brainstorming and sketching out ideas, but almost all my writing is in Evernote now. For some reason, brainstorming and note taking on paper are easier for me. I keep the ‘neat’ version of my notes in Evernote. Maybe it’s a generational thing – I didn’t grow up with computers – or maybe its just a personal preference. Either way, where I used to go through a standard 5 x 8 Moleskine every couple of months, I’m down to two a year.
