Rocketbook #sol19

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.

    This sounds like a cool tool! I will have to check it out. Most of my academic papers started out on paper and then, once I felt organized, I moved to the computer. But, I think I would be less inclined to erase my words (before I scanned) and change them to something that might not be as clearly stated as I originally had written it with this tool. Thanks for the info.

      The only things I wish I could change are the type of pens and I wish I had more pages in my current notebook. The Frixon pens are okay, but I’ve gotten spoiled by Ink Joy pens😊 However, I’ve written a lot more since using the Rocketbook and it has been great for keeping up with all of this writing without forgetting which notebook it’s in.
