gtdnubcake, you have discovered the strange paradox of the GTD forums--despite the fact that we're all here precisely to discuss how our implementations differ, a lot of people insist that there's a "right" way to do things.
Here's a comment I find relevant...
to back that up from the book:

There really are no "shoulds" beyond "Get it off your mind and review it appropriately so that it stays off your mind until it's the right time to get done."
The implementation of GTD is intensely personal and highly situation specific. When you ask with the understanding that you're going to get multiple options, you'll get multiple options and you can pick and choose which ones to try. No two of us are implementing GTD in exactly the same way.
That said-- to give you an answer about where *I* put my projects: I use Google Tasks for my NA lists, and my project list is simply a list in Google Tasks. Since my contexts lists are all preceded with the @symbol, that means that my lists "Projects" and "Projects--Writing" and "Someday/Maybe" appear at the bottom of my system, which is perfect since I don't review those as often.

Reason: that paradox wasn't a paradox
