Hello everyone! Here’s a question for all you writers. Do you have a writing notebook? For those who don’t know what this is, it’s basically a writer’s diary. It’s a journal that holds just about whatever information a writer needs.
To get started, what do you put inside your writing notebook? First of all, here’s a tip. Use a separate notebook for each project. If you have multiple projects going on, it’s useful to use different notebooks for each project to help keep your things organized.
Here’s a list of the type of things I keep in my writing notebooks:
- Story ideas
- Character names and their meanings
- Story outlines
- Character profiles
- Book cover ideas
- Drawings or layouts that pertain to your story
- Notes from meetings (like with your editor)
- Any notes you want/need that go to your story
- Story timelines
Having one place to keep all my ideas and notes helps me stay organized and know where everything is. This is why all writers should have a writing notebook, even if your notebook ends up being an online file or document. And for those of you who like to write by hand, a writing notebook is the perfect place to keep all your things. And having separate notebooks for each project is even better.
Having a specific place to keep all your writing information is important and extremely helpful
