MINDMAPQUENSE
The first draft of a novel needs consistency and continuity: the more the better the novel will be. Mind-maps offer a way to gain that consistency.

What if you knew how to create mind-maps to ensure that consistency? And that continuity?

What if you had a way to make sure your characters didn’t inadvertently change in the middle of the story?

Imagine having a visual diagram to keep your plot on track.

What if you could have the synopsis of the novel displayed on a single graphic? It could be used as a roadmap to control your first draft.

Hank Quense is the author of a number of highly regarded novels and often writes and lectures on fiction writing techniques. His non-fiction book Creating Stories has been praised by novices and published authors alike.

In this lecture series, you’ll learn how to
  • Use mind-maps to ensure the first draft is consistent.
  • Create a mind-map depicting the character’s important traits
  • Create mind-map to ensure the plot events and turns are in sync
  • Develop a graphical synopsis of the entire story.
  • Get control of your first draft! By using mind-maps! Inconstancies are difficult to root out. Learn how to prevent making them.
