One of the problems I found with mind mappers and why I went back to 3×5 index cards for the time being is the ability to easily move and shuffle things in a tactile way that allowed me to re-order scenes of my story without having to fight with an interface.
Then the other day it occurred to me; Maybe there is note card software out there designed to behave exactly like 3×5 note cards?
There is, and it’s called Text Block Writer. Text Block Writer allows you to create, manage, and visually arrange virtual index cards. The best part? It’s free. If you like the free version, you can support the creator by purchasing Text Block Author — Text Block Writer’s big brother.
And so I go from the virtual to the real-world physical back to the virtual again.
P.S. As usual I’ve mocked up one of my crazy structure templates in Text Block Writer.
