My previous post discussed three apps/programs for online organization.
After struggling to remember what I had named a poor schmuck I'd killed off, I decided I needed a system. I love systems!
If I had a Mac, I'd have used Word Notebook. It's just like a 5 subject wire bound notebook with tabs. Very cool and a Microsoft product so if you use Word for writing, it's easy to use. I have a Windows laptop and have yet to find the Notebook option in MS Word for PC.
So, I decided to use Gingko. And I love it! It's a card style tree outline.
I started with characters, of course. Each character gets his or her own card, where I write the basic physical description. I add another card for internal conflict, external conflict, family members, backstory. Think three column outlines.
I added a setting card under the character card on the first tier.
The last card on the first tier is about herbs and potions used in homeopathic healing.
So, I am now organized in my details and I can quickly access information at will.
The best part is that it is cloud based, so I can access it anywhere. Try it!
