So I thought I’d create a thread for those of us who love our Field Notes notebooks of all varieties. How do you use your Field Notes for music, art, organization, daily life, etc? Are you hyper-organized and developed your own indexing system or are you totally spur-of-the-moment and never return to a book once it’s been filled up? Photos, discussions, tricks/tips, techniques, or simply heartfelt poetry to these humble pocket notebooks are all welcome.
I’ll start with a little glamour shot of my two larger format notebooks I use for code brainstorms/mental notes and wood project diagrams. With the exception of a daily “whatever” book, I tend to concentrate each notebook on a specific subject, so I’ve got a book for physical projects (mostly wood and fabric but I’ve also got dimensional layouts of my apartment and other useful diagrams and visual layouts), a book for music stuff (includes MIDI patches, music software ideas/concepts, synth patch layouts, etc.), a book - two books by now - for my French lessons, etc. My aloe plant is saying hi too (had to bring the houseplant angle into this!).
