I began using Mind Mapping software a number of years ago, during my brief sojourn using a PC as my main computing platform. Axon Idea Processor helped me in planning the courses I was teaching in Kenya – allowing me to work and think in a non-linear manner. I used it successfully in proposal and TV program writing, as well.
Rather than go back to the PC to write my book, I decided to investigate OS X based mind mapping software and have fallen in love with Nova-Mind. It’s missing some of the features of Axon – but it’s a much more elegant program – the designs it helps you create can be quite beautiful – triggering further creativity. Check it out.
