   Once I thought about things like: why such information is for free here? Because when you write a book then at least on selling a book you get a percentage. Thank you and good luck on informing people more about it… mens christian t shirts

   I always benefit from locating a site that provides very good information since I like being familiar with interesting things. I desired to say that I discovered the content on your website was particularly entertaining and that I learned something new. An excellent web-site and I will come back once more for more fantastic content…  Louisville seo

@Irina Ivanova mind-mapping is a great technique, and freemind is a solid program

I don’t have favorite craft-specific tools, but I do use mind mapping, both to keep track of existing details and of notes for unwritten scenes. I use FreeMind. Clean and easy interface. On the right, characters, locations, and specific objects that are important to the story or that I’ve made up; on the top left, short descriptions of the currently written scenes, middle left is list of planned scenes with notes, bottom left is notes and ideas I may or may not include in the story. Visual enough to make brainstorming simpler, flexible enough to allow me to focus on any given matter (nodes can be collapsed and expanded, color-coded, etc), and while I write, I can use it for quick reference. (and FreeMind is open source)

So through editing I was just introduced to the simple but helpful character impact matrix (https://robertbatten.net/2017/06/22/character-impact-matrix/).

I thought I’d throw the question out there - what are your favourite craft tools/techniques?
