There's a couple.
I actually rarely use note taking software
Maybe once I get the house organized, I will get all my ideas (writing, creativity, etc) all organized tooI use it for two things. One is taking notes for work (meeting notes, that sort of thing). The other is for jotting down and playing with ideas for my writing. I have a lot of a fantasy world planned out in my OneNote writer's notebook and have barely scratched it in actual stories (two fairly short stories).
Last and keeping my doodles inside my head.
@Mendalla ...I had that problem with almost every essay I had to write in high school and university (undergrad) - I could hit all the important points in half the word (or page) count the teachers/profs wanted but to get the marks I had to add a LOT of useless "fluff"You know what's harder than cutting a story down to a specified length? Padding a story up to a specified length. For maximum points in a comp, I need the story I am writing to be exactly 2581 characters. Problem is, I am at 2550 or so and, really, it is done. Story is told, protagonist has escaped the cosmic darkness that was stalking her, and I like where I have it. I will see if there are some contractions I can expand and things like that but, damn, I don't think I've ever had this problem before.
