Voilà, ça c’est exactement l’image de mon rêve le plus fou : avoir une table au ras de la mer pour y poser mon envie d’écrire et mes petits carnets… loin de tout si possible.
Vous avez ça pour moi ?
Si oui… je vous réponds aussitôt, je deviens votre ami pour la vie, je vous épouse s’il le faut, je vous aime pour toujours… et au-delà … :-)

****Paper Notebook that Syncs to Cloud****
I’ve been using *those* notebooks (you know the ones) for several years now … little ones as everyday carry for all the random stuff, and bigger ones as an appointment diary and a place to stick my fruit stickers. I love using notebooks, and they are indispensable to my creativity and productivity. But it’s not only the simple, analog process of pencil to paper. Occasionally, I pull old notebooks off the shelf to look for old ideas and new inspiration. Or just to enjoy the satisfaction of having a lovely stack of filled notebooks with the squiggles of my brain guano.
Enter Mod Notebooks — Paper and ink notebooks (that don’t cost all that much more than *those other* notebooks) and once it’s filled, you send your notebook to their idea fairy-archivists, and they scan it, sync it to your account on their app on your phone and VOILA — there it is! Mod will then return your notebook to you, or it can be recycled (*GASP/ CLUTCH AT THROAT*).
No more being away from your chicken scratch archive, no more saying “I know the name of that song, I wrote it down in my notebook last week [three years/ eleven notebooks ago] …”, etc. They claim the app also syncs with your favorite productivity computer thingy (Hooray for OneNote!). I didn’t know I wanted that feature until they offered.
Now if they’d just scan all my old notebooks ….
Okay, so not only is this a cool new thing I heard about, but Huckberry has a deal right now that’ll save us about $5 on this very good idea, so I for one am going to try it out.
