I am a PhD student, and I have found that writing down my ideas and thoughts helps me discover new ideas which fascinate me. Such ideas would be difficult to generate just by thinking. Unfortunately, many times I feel lazy to jot down my ideas. The reason for this might me that I don't have any systematic workflow to record my ideas. So how should I maintain, record and manage my ideas without feeling it to be an overhead?
I found mind maps effective to record categorical ideas, but it won't help me much in the idea generation process unlike actual writing down in full sentences. Recently, I found Writemonkey software which allowed me to record my ideas in a distraction-free environment, so how can I make sure that I actually use it in the first place?
To summarize, my main question would be:
How can I ensure that I write as much as possible and incorporate daily writing in my routine considering the fact I cringe writing on paper and prefer my laptop only?
