Edison and Me: How NOT to Do Something Difficult — 7 Comments

  1. True geeks would have a different answer, but the fact is that there is nothing more versatile or customizable than pencil and quad paper.

    White boards throw glare at the camera, as do blackboards. The software? You didn’t mention Curio or Scapple, both of which I have used. Curio has lots of abilities (specially for building collages) and Scapple is quick to learn.

    I won’t feel cheated if you scan your quad paper or your little books-a-million spiral notebook or a fancy-schmancy Moleskine and voice over them. It’s all about the same thing: transferring information from your mind to ours.

    Not all of us are geeks. All of us are writers. We totally dig paper and pens.

    • Just bought Scapple a few minutes ago, checking out Curio now.

      I built some STRANGE new tools for the HTWAS Expansion, and I want to make sure I can transfer the concept for using them clearly.


  2. I’m really looking forward to the updated How to Write a Series. I don’t know if it would be what you’re looking for, but have you tried Scapple? It’s by Literature and Latte, who make Scrivener. It’s mind-mapping software, but much more user friendly than others I’ve tried. There’s a free trial, and the full version is only $14.99. Just a thought. I hope you find something that works well for you!
