Do you like to use different colored inks for different tasks? Or do you have a specific system of color coding for your handwritten notes?
If yes, how does using these colors make your process easier or more enjoyable?
A few years back when I was helping a friend to write a book, my process was to first type out the interviews as we spoke over the phone. After making any quick and easy corrections, I would print out the interview and then begin marking changes and adding notations in red ink. (At the time, I was using a red Lamy Safari with a CI nib that Pendemonium cut for me. It was filled with Diamine Poppy Red ink.)
After my notes were in order, I’d typically re-write the pieces longhand in a different color ink and then later type them up. The next piece I’d re-write, would be in a different color. For whatever reason, using the different inks and pens made the process more enjoyable. Part of these re-writes were in a Rhodia 4-Color Notebook and I loved flipping through the book and seeing all of the ink colors (which to me meant progress) in contrast to the colored edges of the paper.
