One Note is an electronic notebook. There are tabs across the top for each section and on the right side of the screen, categories with subpages.
I have tabs for each Sarah Janes book, 1-3. Under each tab a subpage for each character, and under each of those, another subpage for their profile including pictures I've found online that represent the character. I can click back and forth between books to set up the series as easily as plotting one book and I don't lose ideas like when I relied on sticky notes. Additionally, I have tabs named Timeline for 1876, Promotions, To Do, and Writing Calendar where I have each month as a subpage so I can log in my time spent writing. (Regretfully, not much on there!)Two other notebooks hold my information for upcoming books. I'm not sure if I like writing or just the planning of the book. Could it be I lose enthusiasm for writing because I feel the book is completed? Today, I planned to spend all afternoon writing. So far, I've written this blog post. LOL
I'd love to hear other writers' thoughts on the matter…do you plot and plan? Do you take off writing destination unknown? A little of both?I'm off to write, not plot. I mean, how much do I really have to know about these people and their lives?
