A note on notes

Tbh I’d like to note that I have gravely underestimated the value of notes. You’d think someone who calls their blog songs for now would know to focus on notes because music. But no. Because I’m such an intuitive writer (as if that wasn’t obvious haha), I kind of try not to structure my writing too much, so I’ve tended to think I don’t need to jot down ideas, remember or record fragments.

Lately, I have become a rather insatiable note-taker & find that of all the technical things about creating, notes are the most intuitive. It’s not limiting, like some writing structure stuff, because it’s your own ideas, waiting for you, kinda organized, but also open ended; so it’s more of a start than anything else, even if it’s like one word.

& beginning can be the most difficult thing. Notes are magical, because you’ve already started without the pressure, maybe on something like a colourful notepad, whether on paper or digitally.

Notes, dear blogosphere, I know you know. Best thing.
