I do remember Findings showing up in blogs at about the same time as “Growly Notes”. I didn’t really fiddle around with either, but inasmuch as there are free versions of both, I may take a look at them after the summer semester.

If you count that as logging, then I am doing a log, too.
I am thinking by way of writing. I usually do that in a separate document, right now in NotebooksApp on Windows and macOS. Keeping notes, todos, problems I ran into, solutions, ramblings…

I am trying FoldingText for this purpose because it contains all the tools required including notes, todos, schedules,

It very free to adapt to one’s needs; must more fluid than the task managers.

I love the fact that I can write extended notes, todos, and schedule (plan) these todos on the same page. The progress note and todo of a whole dissertation can easily be logged with a single file of FoldingTExt.

Perhaps Agenda would serve well as a writer’s log?  Entries can be grouped in categories and projects, linked to calendars and dates, linked to other entries, tagged, assigned to “persons” (i.e., any sort of entity), grouped in saved searches, etc., contain checklists, and exported anywhere.

That’s a great suggestion, Paul.

As an aside—or maybe it isn’t—one of the developers, I believe, also worked on Findings.
