Giving Microsoft Onenote a try

Perhaps my brain has never completely made it into the digital age. When I am working on a story, I like the three ring binder approach to note taking. Microsoft is offering exactly this type of model, in digital format, with its Onenote program.

The program is available on Windows 10 and Android. These are the two platforms that I use. Windows 10 is where I do all my work, but my Android phone is with me everywhere in case I get an idea while I am away from my computer.

Once I installed the app on all the devices that I use, I created a new “notebook” for my current writing project. The inside of the virtual notebook is filled with different sections. Each section, subsequently, is filled with “pages” that can jot down hand written text, typed text, or images.

Since I am just now finishing the first draft of a short project, now seems to be a good time to try something new. It will be interesting to see how this does compared to the jumbo sized word processor file that I usually use to organize my writing and editing.

Does anyone else have any favorite organization tools writing? If not a specific tool, how do you keep your thoughts organized?
