As I clomp around my first exceedingly clumsy attempt at writing a book/story/series/whatever the crap it's gonna be, I've discovered that my best work is done when i have a good way to visualize my plot. I've heard a lot about the benefit of physical note cards. And I have Scrivener and a (free) subscription to a mind mapping service. But i'm wondering if anyone does anything else? I like to be able to dance around my plot and drop new ideas here and there, and then be able to back up and see a way to make it linear. I'm guessing the ideas I laid out above are probably my best bet, but I'm interested to hear if anyone else has another method that might work well. Or do you use a combo of the methods above?
