Looking at the Org-Mode/Roam ecosystem, it seems there are several different prescribed approaches to doing fleeting notes. I have looked at:
- Org Journal: this was a flop for me, the text was formatted very strangely in Org-Journal mode, where new lines were for some reason identented and it wasn’t obvious how to fix it
- Org-Roam Dailies: I’ve just set this up, and it seems to do a very similar thing to Org Journal, but actually part of Org-Roam.
- The Org-Capture Journal template which appends entries to a single Journal.org file
Was funny but also a bit confusing realising there are (at least) 3 packages that were doing basically the same thing. My question is, how do people take their fleeting notes?
I ask this because I’m currently just using the Org-Roam-Dailies-Capture-Today function to jot down small thoughts of things that could be turned into a note… is this its intended use? How do you remember to go through synthesising notes or deleting them? How do you go through synthesising?
