OneNote for writers:
From The Sunlitdesk: I am an untidy writer. I have index cards in my handbag, scraps of paper all over the place and notebooks with just three lines in them. I admit I like hard copies. But it becomes cumbersome after a while and I’m forever losing track of projects. I still like my index cards and I keep a leather compendium for all those loose pieces of paper one collects over the course of a project, but now I keep a Microsoft Office OneNote notebook too. My current novel requires a great deal of research of seemingly unrelated things. OneNote is a convenient and quick way of storing all that research, as well as notes on the development of the novel. It hasn’t made me a tidy writer, but accessing information while I’m writing has become so much easier and now I can manage writing projects without tons of paper. I highly recommend this program for writers.

I use OneNote 2007 @ work. I teach and all of the teachers on team, plus our Principal & Guidance Counselors have it installed. We keep all of our team meeting notes, behavioral plans, notes & e-mails to parents in OneNote. This way each member of the team has access to them at all times. During our meetings, we are actively using OneNote. When we assign tasks, etc. We do so in OneNote and it syncs with Outlook. During the week, we can check to see if the tasks have been completed and read any notes about them. It has provided the most organized, easily accessible way to share information among so many people. I don’t know how we could accomplish so much without it!
I’m a middle school teacher at a school with a laptop program. Our teachers use OneNote to create shared notebooks on the school server. Some of our classes are semi-paperless because of OneNote. Imagine being in 7th grade and doing your math on a tablet with a OneNote notebook for math assignments!
The New King James Version for OneNote 2007 is now available. Each book in the Bible is a separate OneNote section, with each chapter in the book belonging to a page within that section. Using the built-in functionality of OneNote 2007, you can insert your own ink notes, view the Bible text and notes in full screen mode, search your ink and text notes, sync your Bible notes between multiple computers, record the audio of sermons and play it back in time with your notes (with permission of course !), and insert additional pages and sections. The text has been specially formatted to allow plenty of space for marking up and taking ink notes: wide margins, double spacing, and more.

I keep mentioning how I use Microsoft OneNote to people, and they keep asking about it. I use this program for personal, business and school. I have recipes from blogs, and the blogs noted. Any sewing ideas or blog ideas have their own little spot in my notebooks. I can print all of the deals from MultiTaskingMama and go back through them when I have time to, or date what I have already done to see when I will get that deal.
