Is it possible to make notes that are connected to a document in microsoft word?

hopefully this is the right place to ask this. I am working on writing a story and I was wondering if there was a way to make notes within my writing that doesn't actually show up in the document (sort of like post-it notes stuck on a page?) so that I don't lose something that I'd like to add later.

Of if you have any ideas on how to take notes or something. *shrugs* I'm open to any suggestions really.

    They are called "Comments".

    From Word Help:

    Insert a comment

    Select the text or item you want to comment on, or click at the end of the text.

    On the Insert menu, click Comment.

    Type the comment text in the comment balloon.


    If the comment balloons are hidden, you can type the comment in the Reviewing Pane.

    You can rest the insertion point over the balloon to display the name of the reviewer.

    To respond to a comment, click in the comment you want to respond to, and then click Comment on the Insert menu. Type your response in the new comment balloon.


    You hide or view comments by clicking Markups on the View menu.

    Right-click on an empty space in the toolbar. Select the "Review" option. A new toolbar should apeear that should allow you to add notes anywhere in your text.
