I'd love to hear how it work for you, Jane!! I am just learning Scrivener and am very interested in trying Scrapple! :)

Ruth, I've been using Scapple to mindmap my beta readers' comments on the current draft of my WIP and to throw in my own thoughts. It's a wonderful tool! I have also acquired MagicalPad for my iPad (as Scapple doesn't have an iPad version), a similar concept but with more features. I have to say, though, I like Scapple's simplicity and focus, and the fact that it syncs with Scrivener.

Whether you’re a plotter or a pantser, most of us can probably agree that it’s generally a good idea to have some idea of where you’re going before you start a novel. Even if the idea is as vague as cyborg falls in love with anti-technological hippie girl or when marshmallows attack, it’s necessary to have some form of direction before you launch into the enormous project of writing a book.
