@jasminee @bgcarlisle I realized a while ago that I'll get hung up on having to give a baby idea a title & thereby formalize it way too soon. So now I have .txt files for each year, each titled something like `2018 academic ideas to remember`. Each new idea goes at the top w/ a heading & the date, so I can figure out the context later if necessary. The files are also on Dropbox so I can edit them w/ a notes editor on my phone, so I can pin down fleeting ideas even when I'm not near my computer.
This was really helpful advice though - I often feel pressured to loop in and connect all the texts (since its usually a book or a *embarrassed squirm* meme that starts that process) but posing it all as a question seems like the best way to start
