    Mac Users:



    I just found a free brainstorming (or 'mind-mapping';) program online. I've used it and fonud it useful. You can set a time limit, say 5 minutes, then type in your topic, and then you have just that amount of time to spew out ideas in a list format.



    Mac OS X 10.4 and later.

    FOR PC

    I found a free app for PC, called FreeMind. You can read all about it and see screenshots before downloading at:

    FOR MAC AND PC

    This looks interesting. For Mac and PC, a freeware program called Celtx. Here is the blurb from their website:



    "Celtx is the world's first fully integrated solution for media pre-production and collaboration. It replaces old fashioned 'paper, pen & binder' media creation with a digital approach to writing and organizing that's more complete, simpler to work with, and easier to share."

    I've been playing with it for a bit this evening and it's cool!
