I discovered a new writing tool just before Christmas when shopping on Amazon and I’ve found that it is working well for me. The new tool is called a Rocketbook Everlast and it’s an erasable notebook. I can write in the notebook and enjoy a traditional paper/pen experience before scanning the pages. I can email the pages or send them to Google Drive for later reference (you can also send pages to Evernote, Dropbox, and other cloud-based destinations). Then, with a damp cloth, I can erase the pages and begin again.
I think that this tool has helped me as a writer. I’ve written quite a bit in the past couple of weeks and I’ve noticed a lack of inhibition when writing in the Rocketbook. While I love brand new blank notebooks that are more traditional, I sometimes feel intimidated. What if my words aren’t worthy of the notebook? Sometimes I hesitate to sully the pristine pages of a new notebook. I didn’t feel this way the first time I used the Rocketbook. I think there’s freedom in knowing that I can scan those pages, erase the pages, and start writing again. I also like having a digital copy of my handwritten pages because I can’t second-guess what I’ve written. The words have been saved, even when I’m not sure if they’re the right words or the best words. I’m looking forward to many more writing days with the Rocketbook!
Rocketbook notebooks are designed to be used with Frixion erasable pens.
