Lately, to fit in some thoughtwork time wherever possible (parenthood has made me creative in ways I never thought I'd need to be about time and stealing a bit here and there, in the wee hours of the morning and in between asynchronous naps and even during feeding times), I've been thinking more and more about adding audio notes via a voice recorder to my repertoire of ways to jot down notes and ideas as they happen...
Any RedRoomers out there working this way? I like the idea of leaving your notes with your voice, where you only need a finger, maybe two to press a button or swipe a screen, especially after experiencing the difficulty writing something as mundane as your signature on a receipt (well, mundane until the credit card bills start arriving in bulk) while juggling a toddler and an active infant (I'd like to see those infinite monkeys typing while holding a baby in each arm... sure, they'd be a bit stronger, but there's no Shakespeare coming out of that really large room any time soon).
The writing process, and how it works for others, is something I've been fascinated by... it's always interesting to hear about something that's usually tucked away in the dusty corners, out of sight, dragged out onto your luminescent little laptop screen... so go on... drag it out for me...
Then again, this may be me just wanting to play with new gadgets to avoid the hard part of sitting down and working it out. : )
