Some people work best with writing things out by hand before committing it to a typed format. Whether we’re talking about notes from class or a meeting, an important letter, or a draft of a school paper, there are many reasons people still turn to their notebooks first. Typing all of that up can seem tedious and give you a neck ache from looking down at the notebook.
To work faster, and prevent a crick in your neck, borrow a pants hangar from your closet. Make sure it’s the kind with clips on either end. Clip one end to the top of your laptop screen, and the other clip can hold your notebook. Your paper and screen are now at the same level, and you can work much more efficiently.
