Do you use mind mapping as you’re writing your book? I’m an avid mind mapper — I tend to think in mind maps, after using them daily for many years.
NovaMind’s (mind mapping software developer) latest newsletter contained this snippet:
Author makes over $500,000 using NovaMind; eagerly awaiting NovaMind 5
Juan GÃ³mez-Jurado uses NovaMind Mind Mapping software to write his booksâ€¦and apparently it is working out rather well for him, seeing as he has sold over a million copies of his book â€œGodâ€™s Spyâ€, and has also received over half a million dollars for his last book.
If you’re not using mind maps, get acquainted with them and start using them — they can help you at all stages of writing your books, or of doing anything else.
What can you use mind maps for?
* Every stage of the writing process
* To do lists
* Thinking — discovering what you really think about something
* Presentations, speeches
Everyone’s an individual, so you’ll find your own unique processes for using mind maps. As stated, I use them every day, usually I draw them on index cards, and use the iSight camera in my iMac to transfer them to my computer — EverNote does this in just one second.
(If you’re an iPhone/ iPod touch user, watch for NovaMind’s new iBlueSky mind mapping for the iPhone.)
