Okay, so I’m writing novels, and short stories, but novels currently, and that means I’ve got to keep a lot of stuff straight in my head. So, I keep notes. I actually use the OneNote application in MS Office. It lets me keep lots of filed notes, all hierarchically set out. I keep plot ideas, the names of minor characters, details on major characters, the background to the world, the creatures, etc, all filed for easy reference.
My problem is that I never seem to keep enough notes! I keep losing characters and having to trawl back through piles of text to find them. Or I discover I never wrote down someone’s birthday.
Is it even possible to keep enough notes? Does anyone manage to? Ever?
