My mindmapping software of choice is NovaMind. I use the Platinum version, but there
are also standard and pro versions with somewhat fewer features. Highly recommended.

For itty bitty, quick and dirty stuff, I use incubator. Also excellent.

Rebecca,

You might be interested in looking at Daylite. I haven't used it, but from what I've heard,
it might be what you are looking for.

I have a love-hate relationship with SOHO notes. I don't know of any app that makes capturing data easier, regardless of what else you happen to be doing on your Mac... BUT it's a beast, takes ages to load, more ages to constantly back up it's dBase, crashes periodically, thinks nothing of intruding...

I'm currently using the OmniFocus Alpha but I must admit 'Things' looks v. nice. However the website is not very informative on system requirements, but it looks Leopard only. Tacitus, I am running Leopard, so I can't tell if Things is Tiger compatible, but I can tell you that IMHO, it runs circles...

Quickpost: I've been using Things for the past several days (Alpha version). And I love it! There are a few things still missing, mostly convenience issues, as far as I can tell, but it's smart and fast and slick and easy. Most of all, for my working style at least, it works. I don't care whether it...

Hey crimewriter!

I haven't seen your monicker around in a while. Are you working on a new novel?

Thanks, Hugh. Great to hear you liked it.

Matt, I don't think it's available directly in OZ yet. I do know some Aussies who've bought it,
but they did so through amazon.com. I know it's coming, but I don't know when. I'll post
something as soon as I find out.

All the best,

I haven't written for a while. And had promised to talk about the marketing efforts I've been putting together for Think Better . First, I should tell you that my theory about the publisher's business model has been confirmed by a number of sources — published authors I have talked with, my litera...

Keith,

Just watched the vid. Very very well done! I talk a lot about Scriv to friends and colleagues,
but it's often difficult to give them a taste. Now I can just refer them to the video. Really well
done, mate!

Tim

PS Also nice to hear your voice.

Great advice werebear, and beautifully written. How's the weather in the mountains by the way? Must be just about ready to snap, if it hasn't already. Always one of my favorite times of the year in a very special place. I've spent several falls in Paul Smith's (if you can even say there's an "i...

Re: OK so I confess I am stuck...

Why would a group of people randomly go on a journey, adding others to the group as they went? What reason could possibly be sufficiently un-cliche in a fantasy genre? Hello, Skybluemornings...
