Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers

What software do you use to keep a visual track of plot, characters and events?

Hi fellow authors,


I'm about to embark on research for an historical character and because I'm a visual learner I'd like to SEE the various threads to the story/research.


I'm just wondering if any members are using a particular software as part of their writing research and which they'd recommend?


Best Wishes,

I've heard good things about yWriter, Geoff. It's free too and could be ideal for you. There's also a video tutorial link there that will give you a better idea how it works.

Thanks Scribbler, will check it out.

I've also come across Mindnode, but the free package is a bit too limited for my needs. I'll check out yWriter!

Thanks and Have a great Christmas,


Evernote and marble notebooks. I'll sometimes cut the pages out of the marble and scan them to evernote.

I am inches away for paying for an account with evernote...inches...just not ready to take that plunge yet. The free service is just so incredible I don't want to buy it and then realize it has nothing extra that I will use.
