Scapple is a brilliant little program, and I think I’ll write more about it—and about its sister program, the wonderful word processor, Scrivener—at some point in the future. Here I just want to show something that I quite quickly threw together….
It’s a post-outline of Professed, showing the relationships of the characters.
It doesn’t cover every relationship—for example, Travis knows Jennifer independently of Tom—but I think if I tried to connect every possible person every possible way, the chart would end up looking like a sea of angry tapeworms (which is exactly what the pre-outline chart for my current work-in-progress looks like). But I like I how it shows Nelda as the central character….
Anyway…this isn’t a work of art, but I think it’s interesting—I like looking at it.
