Scapple, An Author’s Best Friend!

I know I’ve blogged about the wonders of Scapple before, but since writing that post, I have discovered new ways of it being the best ever bit of software for authors. I mention a couple of the ways mentioned in my previous post, as well as some new ones, and I’m sure there are many more uses for it, if you use the software in a different way, please comment below. You can trial the software for free, and it’s a super reasonable price to purchase.


Summary of the Uses for Scapple:

#1. Family Tree

#2. Planning a book series

#3. Simple infographics 

#4. Timeline

#5. Chapter Summary

#6. Character mapping – when you have lots of characters spread out through a series of books.
