You learned this in grade school, back when you remembered to have a little fun. And maybe because it was fun you may have forgotten that it can come in extremely handy in a pinch. Call it brainstorming, or spiderwebbing, or a more abstract form of outlining, but it’s all the same. Visual.
Mind-mapping allows your mind to think outside the proverbial box. It provides a clear view of story snarls. It sets your mind free to soar to undiscovered horizons and distant shores previously hidden and unknown to both you and your Muse. It gives you the opportunity to discover ideas and concepts that maybe you hadn’t considered before. It will grant you the chance to craft your novel masterpiece and tell a story that will allow others the wonder and joy of blissful escape…
And all because you the writer were unafraid to explore the furthest reaches of your creative mind.
Write on, and may your Muse be with you.
“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
