I'm Currently Working On
STATES OF THE NOTES
I've borrowed an idea from Topobon using icons to visually represent the growth-state of each note:
|Thoughts/notes barely started.||Notes that have a substantial amount of content but need much more work/thought.||Coherent thoughts/expressions that are - more or less - complete.|
