No matter how digitized the world becomes, some things just work better when you write them down. This includes the art of brainstorming. There is a satisfaction that comes when you create an idea in your head, and write it down. This same satisfaction can also come from hand drawing.

People think of stencils for just arts and crafts, but they can be used for more than that.
