Do You Have a Story Box?
My story box is a plastic index card holder, filled with multi-colored 5"x8" index cards. I have different color cards for each tab divider. I have a divider for characters, settings, and story ideas.
Sometimes a setting comes to mind, or I see a picture that intrigues me. These go on a settings card. Unique plots pop into my mind, and no matter how silly they sound, I put them on a plot card.
There are many different ways to use story boxes. Mine works wonders for helping me with brand new stories.
Anyone else out there use a story box? I'd love to hear how yours is set up.
