My thanks to Literature & Latte for filling our premier sponsor spot & supporting DigitalDojos. Allowing creators like myself to produce content as independent network.

Literature & Latte are the makers of two amazing writing tools for both OS X & Windows. Scrivener & Scapple are independently powerful tools to allow you to write & gather ideas quickly. Together however there’s no better combination of writing tools available. Whether it’s a novel, script, or mapping out an idea their tools have you covered.
We previously highlighted Scrivener in a past campaign:
- Best Writing Tools for OS X
- How To: Improve Your Writing Workflow
- How To: Create & Publish an E-Book w/Scrivener
This time however I wanted to highlight another tool from Literature & Latte that I’ve been using in my own personal workflow, Scapple. Scapple is a tool for quickly recording ideas in a freeform way. The aim of the app is to serve as a canvas for you to take ideas & quickly record them whatever they may be & draw connections to them as you go or later on. The best analogy comes from their site itself
If you’ve ever scribbled down ideas all over a piece of paper and drawn lines between related thoughts, then you already know what Scapple does.
What I enjoy about Scapple is it’s ability to start simple but allow you to freely connect things in whatever way the thoughts form. You can write notes anywhere on the canvas, connect them via lines, organize them in columns & so on.
Whether your trying to map out a project or storyboard an idea Scapple for Windows & Mac is for you. Check out my own overview of the application down below.
All in all Scapple provides a blank canvas for you to really layout anything. Be it your family history, charts, or big business project. There’s no wrong way to use Scapple, it’s for the visual & creative mind. Take that idea out of your head & organize it as you go. Unlike a scrabble on a piece of paper this app gives you the power to rearrange your thoughts on the fly or after the fact.
