I am not by nature a list maker. Lists get long and restrictive and I never know what to put on said lists because when I start writing, especially with pen and paper then it becomes stream of consciousness writing and then my little list is 4 pages long with 6 addendum. I used to try to make notes of the brilliant ideas that come to me late at night when I can't sleep or when I wake for a few minutes and have had a project on my mind. The only problem with this is that I would write something that made sense to me right in that moment and the next morning? Yeah, I could never figure out what I meant. Never. I think that means that my stream of consciousness at that point in time is not so comprehendable...or that I am drunk and don't know it.
Here are some examples of notes that have been in said notes (usually the backs of envelopes or magazines)
-PAINT! (what? I don't know)
-nailfiler keeper (do I make one, need one, or invent one?)
It's been several years since I did this and those notes are still in my head and every now and then I try to focus on them so that I can recreate the thought because obviously they were brilliant thoughts and I need to recapture then so I can make millions of dollars!
Have you ever taken notes and gone back and not understood?
