Blogger and WU reader LJ Cohen has created an ingenious method of organizing information that’s embeddable into your wip — and not a post-it or scribbled napkin in sight — called TiddlyWikiWrite. In part one of her two-part series on TiddlyWikiWrite, Lisa described what a wiki was and how writers can use them to corral the mountains of information needed for a book. Part two shows us TiddlyWikiWrite in action. I can’t wait to give this one a whirl. Click the link to embiggen — Kath.

But even approaching this novel more like a ‘pantser’, I found using the wiki to be invaluable in keeping me on track.
