How Gerald Uses Folders

When I start a new project, I create a folder for it on my computer. Then I create an outline for the project, and save it into its own document. Any planning files I need — research notes, character bios, setting info, world-building lore — each gets its own separate doc file.

Yah, pretty much. I put characters, places, and things not directly related to the story down in Research. My research section can get pretty muddled, especially if I have things I no longer use in the binder. (I’ll put them into another file under research, because I tend to reuse things.)
