Adopt A Notebook Over A Phone….

We live in a technologically advanced age. We can do anything with our phones ranging from sending messages to friends and family, to posting updates to our various social media accounts, and everything in between.

But one thing that technology allows us to do, is write notes in our phones. And when I say notes, I mean actual notes on a notepad. Hell, you can even open up the app and it will look like a legit notepad on the screen.

The problem I have with that is, I prefer to just physically write down my notes.

Obviously, both writing your notes and typing them onto a screen accomplish the same goal. But the feeling of a nice ballpoint pen hitting a sheet of paper just makes me feel like I am actually doing something.

Writing these notes down instead of typing them out also helps me to get into a flow. Because with typing, it more or less comes down to just typing it out and finishing my thought. But with a pen and paper, a rhythm starts, and the ideas just start to flood onto the page.

But if you’re going to adopt this instead of using your phone, PLEASE don’t line your pockets with crumpled up sheets of notebook or printer paper. For crap sake, you’ll just look like a fool if you do.

Instead, do what I do and invest in a nice pocket notebook. You know, something small enough that you can take with you anywhere you go. If you are a writer, like me, it can really help you get out of that “writers block” you may be in.

And if you are a very disorganized S.O.B., also like me, it will help shape up your schedule as well.


I want to know though, are you a notebook person? Or a phone person? Let me know in the comments below, or on one of The Midwestern Barfly Gazette’s various social media accounts;
