Hi all I have been working on my project for a pretty long time, but it seems like it has no end. It's still in the brainstorming phase, and I would like to wait writing the actual plot when I feel that I have some solid ideas to chose from. My project is constantly evolving at the plot and character aspect, and it's fine, but sometimes I wish I could just assemble all of my tiny ideas and actually draw a thick line; this should be here and that should be there. Some of the ideas seem too precious to "throw away". It feels like I have too many possible ramifications of the plot parts and that am some point I'm going to have to sacrifice this and that in order to keep the story simple. I have also made a "skeleton" of the whole plot - a timeline with Start and End, and I've added markers with notes that say when should what happen. For instance 50% within the story, the character will find out that he is going to die. 75% within the story, the character accept his fate and stops being affraid. And later I add other sub-markers with sub-plot parts and more cosmetic parts of the plot. I would love to hear how you deal with your plot and how you prioritize which parts of the story you sacrifice and which parts you keep. I would love to have a system that makes it easier for me to have an easier overview of the whole story. Right now it's just too much sporadic text. Is there a software that makes it easier to deal with this? I would love to have a sort of mindmap where there are different possibilities for how the story begins, how it evolves and how it ends. I appreciate all the input.
