Writing a novel is a big project. As such, it's easy to become overwhelmed with all of the information you have to keep track of when it comes to plot, characters, setting, and outline. When I began to write my first epic fantasty novel, I quickly discovered that I needed a way to keep track of all of these things plus notes and more! So, I want to pass along the thing I did that helped me do just that... a novel binder!
Whether you’re writing a six-book long epic fantasy or just a cozy mystery and need to keep track of who's who, this article will hopefully provide everything you need to keep track of #allthethings and, if it does, make sure to share it with your writer friends.
I like to seperate my novel binder into five sections like so:
1) Publishing Plan / Writing Plan
2) Novel Information
3) World Information
4) Character Information
5) Outline + Notes
Want a set of your own novel binder printables?
I’ve designed this printable so that you can easily print it out, fill it out, and hang it on your wall so that you can refer to it when those negative questions hit.
