I take notes.
I’ve always had notes. At work, I had a ton of sticky notes and if they got disturbed, then I’d go into forty-seven fits. They had everything from phone numbers to names to to-dos and random numbers. I managed to get it all under control in a Steno book within a few weeks, but people loved to hand me sticky notes for tasks I had to do.
I wished I had Tomboy Notes in this situation. I used a series of text files as well as a series of to-do lists in my Steno book.
I’m using Tomboy to manage my little thoughts. Ideas for NaNoWriMo, ideas for blogs, ideas for other fic, specific job search tasks, and the like.
Simple, eh? I have different things connected to each other, like everything in the NaNoWriMo notebook.
I’m using Tomboy to organize my thoughts for my NaNoWriMo story. You can also see that I’ve got a section for “Job Search” in which I have notes pertaining to my… job search. Notes about companies, notes to myself about email, etc.
I’ve gotten another program to manage notes called basKet. @slackusr suggested it. I haven’t figured out how to really set it up yet, but I wanted to get it so I have another choice besides Tomboy Notes and sticky notes. I’ll post more info about it once I use it more, but I’m very impressed right now. I’d like to give it a try. It seems like a very powerful application.
I think this works very well for me. I love being able to keep things organized so I can find it later. These note programs will help me.
