Re-doing my Mind Map

As I’ve said before, I’m writing fiction for the Kindle platform. Right now I’m trying to get my artist lined up…  but I want to start the novel before  the Indiegogo project gets underway.

To get started I’m trying to get my  mind map for the first book done on a new tool:

Scrivener (software)

I began to use Scrivener last October before NaNoWriMo. I’m on the Windows version, which isn’t as feature-rich as the Mac one.

That has changed thanks to its native mind-mapping tool in Beta for Windows, a utility called Scapple.

I used Xmind before and even recommended it here. It’s a great program, but too structured for  the ideas that come to you for writing. The ideas for prose don’t often come in structured ways.

As a result I’m starting my map over, and also getting new ideas for the plot and characters as I go.
