Whether I am brainstorming goals, projects, or tasks, or, for that matter, outlining a potential book or lecture, the traditional process is to use some kind of capture tool (sequential, such as Word, or non-sequential, such as Mind Manager) to capture, organize, and edit my thoughts.
Question is, suppose I like working outside. Suppose I have trouble seeing my laptop because of outdoor glare. Is it workable to use speech recognition software to capture my thoughts outside and, when I eventually move inside, change modes to arrange and edit?
The heart of this question is what is writing? I believe it is not simply capturing thoughts -- it is seeing them on paper and, once seen, re-arranging and modifying the expression of those thoughts.
So, the question is, has anyone separated the capture and the editing of thoughts? Will what I am thinking of work?
Thanks for sharing your experience and thoughts.
