I have two shelves full of half-filled notebooks, and two binders, each with four hundred pages of notebook paper in them. I have a stretchy file organizer, and lots of those tab thingies you put between pages to separate them into subjects.
I am terribly unorganized, when it comes to story notes.
Therefore, I have decided to make a themed organizer for my WIP. A Story Folder. After all, what is the fun of actually being able to find what you need when you need it unless your tabs are illustrated with scenes from your story and your folders are labeled in ancient script?
Not that I actually have either of those. I guess I’ll have to make them.
So, how does one organize their notes? What do they need?
5–Random scenes, plot bunnies, and quotes
7–Edited drafts (at various stages)
9–Whatever I forgot
Hmmm. This may be a project as big as writing a novel! Teehee…
I love procrastinating. Don’t you?
How do you organize your thoughts and ideas? Do you like organizing? Or do you just prefer to fly and let fly?
