Mind mapping can be used in just about any situation when ideas need to be reeled in and transformed into practical application. Mind Map on the Macro and Micro Levels I’ve never seen anyone specifically focus on novel structure or fiction plotting via mind mapping, so I’m going to show you ways I feel mind mapping can be useful for the novelist.
