For you, it's important to stress that sketchnotes—although they are inherently a visual medium—do not require drawing ability of any kind. Maybe you're perpetually drawing and want to try and make your notes more useful and engaging but you are afraid of imposing structure to your normally freeform way of sketching. In the end, it's up to you. So let's get tactical. First you need the right tools for the job. Once you have your kit assembled, you'll need to think about the location you'll be sketchnoting.
