This is probably going to sound like an infomercial because I am so excited about this product, but I can assure you that not only do I not represent the company in any way, I paid for these myself and actually ordered five!
The product I am so excited about is Aquanotes and they have revolutionized my time and my writing!
I usually get my best writing ideas in the shower. What used to happen is that while I was in the shower, I would think of a great idea for a blog post or even a book and then the minute I got out, the kids would be calling me or fighting and all of the ideas would vanish, gone forever. This simple waterproof notepad has changed so much for me!
When I’m in the shower, I am by myself, which is about the only time of day that happens. I am also able to relax and think clearly without interruption.
Now, my shower time is productive time! Not only do I think of great ideas, I am actually able to keep them.
I jot down whatever comes to mind. I have written as many as four note pages at a time and rough drafted entire blog posts and the outline of an ebook this way. Friends and family have been listening to me rave about these little waterproof notepads for weeks now! Some of them probably think I’m loony to be so excited about something seemingly so mundane, but I know how many great ideas were literally washed down the drain in that shower over the years. It goes without saying that my showers are longer now than they used to be!
It’s no secret that I am disorganized, a bit of a scatterbrain and am known to be forgetful. Aquanotes are perfect for me!
I tend to remember things that I forgot while in the shower such as phone calls I need to return or appointments I may have that day. I have begun to make my to-do lists while in the shower and they are so much more comprehensive and inclusive than the ones I used to make!
An added bonus to this already incredible writing tool is that The Husband and I use them to write cute notes back and forth to each other! You may notice that in that top picture, there is a note left on the notepad after I ripped the other pages off to take with me. That is a small bit of encouragement left behind for my awesome husband to find.
There really is no better way to start a day than to see this:
For those who don’t do their best thinking in the shower or for those who remember all their ideas, it may seem like I am overly enthusiastic about a waterproof notepad and pencil that stick to my shower, but those of you who have also experienced the repeated frustration of your best ideas vanishing with the water stream, you may understand. This thing has revolutionized my writing!
