Looking for a way to quickly develop outlines for your writing?

Looking for a way to quickly develop outlines for your writing?

We all have great ideas but sometimes can’t get them on paper. Start With Brainstorming to Get Those Ideas Out! Brainstorming has different meanings for different people. For me, I take the term literally. It is a storm in my brain and storms aren’t really controllable. That meshes with the purpose of brainstorming, to record as many thoughts as possible without any analysis or screening. That comes later. What will I miss if I stop and try to categorize everything…

Get Organized!

Get Organized!

MESSY No, it doesn’t have to be this way! (Flickr/Creative Commons photo) Every year, it’s the same old thing: New Year Resolutions and Good Intentions topped with a big helping of Early Disappointments. Still, we do it because some will make it and the result will be personal, social, and/or business  successes. This is the time of year that many will clean out closets and rearrange  things to prepare for the new year. It’s the time of year when business…

Evernote is one of those applications that just keeps evolving as the need arises.

In my previous post about Evernote, I mentioned several features but in this post, will focus on the app’s value in research and writing. What Evernote Can Do? Where do I begin? For saving data, Evernote does almost anything…

Why Use Cloud Storage?

Why Use Cloud Storage?

Has This Ever Happened to You? (If it hasn’t yet, it most likely will!) You just spent six hours working on a chapter revision and feel really good about it. The creative juices were really flowing and you were in the zone with lots of great ideas. Not wanting to lose any revisions, you religiously did backups every 15 minutes to make sure to safeguard those thoughts. The next day, you decide to make other revisions but when you turn…

The Value of Planning Your Writing- Outlining and Flowcharting

The Value of Planning Your Writing- Outlining and Flowcharting

What is Evernote?

What is Evernote?

Attempting to describe Evernote is much like the story of the three blind men attempting to describe an elephant based on the place that each touched the elephant. Each one has a separate perception based on the area that was touched. In a similar way, different Evernote users have different descriptions about what it is and what it does. A Place to Store Everything Evernote can store almost every kind of data that you could imagine and in most cases,…
