How to Use Scapple to Quickly Plot Your Next Book
There are many brainstorming, plotting, bubble-like, Gantt charts, project management tools out there, but you don’t really need all the bells ’n whistles when you just want to get your next book idea out of your head and onto the page.
Scapple was developed by the same brains that created the holy grail of writing tools – Scrivener, by Literature and Latte. There was a need for a simple and cost-effective brainstorming/plotting tool and Scapple is the result.
