I feel the dry erase board is key for me because it’s nailed to a wall and I can’t lose it, or forget it in another room or wonder hours later where I put it. I limit my internet/ electronic device usage to certain hours of the day and paper is too easy to get lost in the mass explosion of my creativity.
I love paper, I do. The most important pieces are literally Duct Taped to my workbench.
Everyone is different and as with everything there’s a great deal of trial and error in finding what works best for you.
