It’s time for everyone’s favorite feature: Psyduck’s Mail Bag. Today’s question for Psyduck comes from Samantha in Los Angeles, CA. Samantha writes:
“Hi Psyduck. I want to know how you manage your ideas for your blog. Do you write ideas in a notebook, or do you just start typing and see where that takes you?”
Thanks for your question, Samantha. Psyduck is a duck with many things on his mind, so keeping a notebook is essential for Psyduck and this blog. When he was younger, Psyduck would write his notes on random scraps of paper that would eventually get lost or clutter his desk. After losing one too many important notes about the Pokemon filming schedule, Psyduck got his act together and started keeping a notebook. He started with a typical spiral notebook, but that gave him flashbacks of school, so he quickly moved on to the more stylish and sophisticated Moleskine.
The Moleskine family of notebooks is quite extensive, Samantha, so definitely do some research before you go shopping to be sure you pick the right notebook for you. As a starting point, Psyduck’s favorites at the moment are the the Pocket Storyboard Notebook and the Plain Large Notebook.
The Pocket Storyboard Notebook is a winner for Psyduck because it’s a smaller notebook that he can carry with him on his daily travels. The pages in the Storyboard are thicker than the normal notebooks so he can freely write and sketch with his favorite pens without worrying about the ink bleeding through the pages.
Here is Psyduck starting a new Storyboard notebook by writing in his contact information in the front page. The reward for finding his notebook is Collon.
When Psyduck is at home, he likes to use the Plain Large Notebook for all his writing, sketching and blog preparing.
He especially likes the large notebook because he can stand on it and really get a feel for the project at hand. It’s kinda like Tom Hanks playing the floor piano in Big.
So as you can see, Samantha, between these two notebooks, Psyduck is a well-organized blogging fool.
