I feel like if I could post one of these random notebook thought-jumbles every week, you would get a sense of the general chaos of my world & what I'm up to. lol.
They often become a mash-up of ideas + oh, shit - things I need to write down before I forget + related research + a few ugly finding-my-footing doodles (but that's always funny).
I came across this page in a folder of process for the same project as this. (Do you recognize the girl?) These messy pages are where all my favorite ideas usually happen: I'll be sitting in another class, trying to listen to a lecture and suddenly my whole other project unfolds in front of me, scribbled in pen. Or I lay down in bed and all my best thoughts happen, then. Someone told me that's actually a thing the other day, but I have yet to look it up. I know I'm not alone, anyway...
TED says doodling is good for you. I concur.
Do you doodle?
