Ain't it pretty? This is my brand new story binder for the YA that I'm starting. Each story gets its own binder, and getting a new one is a lot like the first day of school. The edges aren't crumpled and its pages are white and pristine, just waiting for brilliant ideas. I don't actually write the book in the binder (my handwriting is illegible) but its the place for notes, name ideas, character studies and research. It has to have a pocket in the front for all of the stuff that I print out on the computer.
Each binder also reflects the story I'm using it for. The binder for Dirty Little Secrets was plain and black because that's how the story felt. As you can see, this story is a lot lighter - romantic and fun with a twist.
On this date: In 1781, Uranus was discovered.
