Page One - The Writer's Notebook

£18,220

Page One is a notebook designed to help you write your story.

It’s a place to put down all your ideas for your latest project, 192 pages divided into 7 easy-to-use sections that will really let you focus on what’s important.

Each Page One notebook is divided into 7 easy-to-use sections that will help you plan your story, so that when the blank page comes calling, you're ready to answer!

We've created three editions of Page One: Standard, Premium, and the exclusive Kickstarter Edition. Each one is designed for one project, whether you want to write a book, screenplay, comic or any other kind of story.

What is a stretch goal? It's a goal we've set up beyond our original target. Many Kickstarter projects offer stretch goals to reward their backers for the success of the campaign. If we hit a stretch goal EVERY backer gets the benefit offered in that stretch goal at no extra cost.

Stretch Goal #1: Our first stretch goal is for an exclusive 'Ice White' colour option (cover, band and ribbon all white; silver foiling on the Premium edition) which will not be offered at retail, so this is your only chance to get it!

Stretch Goal #2: Our second stretch goal is to add in page numbers and Indexing! We've listened to feedback that we have received and realised that having page numbers on each page would be a really useful feature. In addition, we want to add an index, so you can make a quick note for each page, and find what you need as quickly as possible!

Stretch Goal #3: Our third stretch goal is for a 'Crimson Red' colour option which features a deep red and black colour scheme. The Premium variant will also feature black foiling on the cover logo.

The blank page.

To some it’s terrifying, an obstacle to overcome. But we prefer to think of it as an opportunity; a blank canvas to be filled with all of the adventures and characters in our head.

So how to overcome that fear?  Well, we all know that the best advice for a writer is: write. Seriously, get words on the page, and more will follow.

But what about later, when you start trying to pull the threads of what you’ve written together? What about that character you wrote about way back at the start - who was she again? What did she have? Or where did she leave that macguffin that she now really needs in the third act? 

Think about all those taut thrillers you like to read. Or those epic, multi-volume novels. That amazing drama you just watched. What did they all have in common? Structure and planning.  

Tame the chaos of your desk with Page One
Tame the chaos of your desk with Page One

As aspiring writers ourselves, we’ve tried many different methods to try and organise all the thoughts we have about the stories we want to tell. We might be on a train, scribbling something down on scrap paper, or maybe making a quick note on our phone after a meeting. Other times, we’ll have time to carefully jot it down in a notebook. All methods that can work, but are also a bit haphazard.  It can be difficult to pull in the thoughts from each of these ideas and apply them to whatever it is we’re writing.  Sometimes we even forget where we made that note we just know would solve the problem we’re now encountering…

And that’s when we realised that it’s not just the story that needs structure and planning, but the way we gather all of our thoughts about it as well.  

And so we made Page One.

Each Page One is designed to help you write your next great story. No matter where you are, it's easy to take your Page One with you. 

We're sure that one of the next great novels, movies or comic books will start with Page One. Make it yours by grabbing a Page One today.

We can't wait to see what you come up with. 

We will be working tirelessly as soon as the campaign ends to start fulfilling all orders and expect to start shipping in August 2019. We have worked really hard to keep our postage costs down to a minimum by using a range of providers depending on the reward level.

UK - We will be using various Royal Mail services for all UK deliveries. Estimated 1 - 3 working days delivery time.

EUROPE - We will be using either Royal Mail or the DHL Group dependent on the reward tier. Estimated 3 - 5 working days delivery time.

REST OF THE WORLD - We will be using either Royal Mail or the DHL Group dependent on the reward tier. Up to 10 working days delivery time.

SINGAPORE / AUSTRALIA / NEW ZEALAND - We will be using either Royal Mail or the DHL Group dependent on the reward tier. Up to 10 working days delivery time.

QUESTIONS?? - If you would like to get in touch to ask about anything (postage related or not) then just send an email to - hello@writegear.co.uk

We will be working with BackerKit to manage all pledges and make the fulfilment of the campaign as smooth, and as quick, as possible. 

If this is your first Kickstarter, don’t worry! Here’s the key things you need to know!

How does pledging work? When will my money be taken?

Any money you pledge is only deducted at the end of the campaign (2 May). You’ll then receive a survey from our pledge managers (BackerKit) in which you will be able to confirm the address your Page One is to be sent to, what colour option you want, and, if you are a Kickstarter Edition backer, what name you want on the inlay papers. You’ll also have the chance to upgrade to a different edition, or order more Page Ones if you want!

For more info about how Kickstarter pledging works, see https://help.kickstarter.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005028514-What-are-the-basics-

I pledged but didn’t get to tell you what colour option I want!

Don’t worry – you do this at the pledge manager stage.

What’s a pledge manager? It’s a way of making sure we send your Page One to the correct place, with the precise specifications you want! After the campaign closes, Kickstarter will deduct the money you have pledged and within a short time (normally it’s 2-3 weeks or so) you’ll receive an email from BackerKit, our pledge managers. At that stage, you confirm your name and address, make sure the pledge matches what you chose, and tell us what colour cover you want. You’ll also have the chance to upgrade to a different edition, or order more Page Ones if you want!

I pledged for the Kickstarter Edition, but haven’t told you what name I want in the end papers!

What if I want to order more than one type of Page One, or multiples?

If you want to order more than one type, or multiple editions, just message us. We can then let you know how much that would be and what reward level you should back, and how much for. When it comes to the pledge manager stage, you can confirm everything is as it should be.

With your support, we want to develop Write Gear into a brand that’s synonymous with innovation and quality. We want to provide writers with the tools they need to tell their stories. Page One is the first step on this journey. 

In addition, we've already started The Page One Podcast. Follow us here (writegear.co.uk/the-page-one-podcast) to listen to writers of all description and learn about the path that took them to where they are today. 

We know that Page One would not be possible without your help. We want to create a real community of writers to help and support each other so that everyone has a chance to share the stories they want to tell. So we truly want to thank you for being the first members of that community, and we look forward to sharing it with you!

Risks and challenges

After working with several different notebook producers we've been able to identify the best and most reliable producer. And with years of experience in manufacturing notebooks, we can ensure you will not be disappointed with the quality of the notebook.

No matter how careful we are and how much planning we do, delivering worldwide will always present a few issues and the possibility of lost items. We will do everything we can to ensure your rewards are received in the best possible time.

Printer Fulfillment - Low Risk
We have been working with a UK based supplier of custom notebooks for the past year. They have a long history in providing customised notebooks and we have been delighted with the quality. We have every faith in them that they will be able to produce the notebooks within our proposed timeline and therefore have categorised this as a low risk.

Shipping Delays - Low Risk
After a fully funded Kickstarter campaign, we will start the process of collecting all the details using our dedicated pledge manager. Once we have got all the customisations in we will put in our order with the supplier who have given us a 6 week lead time for delivery. We will then organise the packing and fulfilment of all orders and anticipate this happening in early August with orders shipping later in the same month.

The UK Leaving the EU - Low Risk
We haver been working closely with our suppliers to ensure that the outcome of the UK leaving the EU will have a minimal affect on the production of the notebooks. At the time of launch the timetable for the withdrawal is uncertain but rest assured we will be monitoring it closely and doing our best to mitigate any delays that may arise.

We will keep everyone up to date via the Kickstarter portal on our progress as we move through the different stages of fulfilling all your orders.
