How many people keep a journal of some sort? I do, although not ritualistically. I love paper, pens and the like and try to write down thoughts, ideas, sketches and (frustrations), etc. I find it let's me just get them out of my head. It's kind of like emptying a hard drive or something sometimes. I have like 20 different notebooks, and don't really write in any particular one (some more than others). I figure one day I'll be able to collate all those notes, but for now it doesn't matter so much. I can read any one of the books and follow the thoughts. I'm a visual person, so if I write something down I never really forget it. I just seem to store the data in a different place (like long term memory, as opposed to my grey matter RAM). What do you write down?
