Sharing an approach on how to visualise all throughlines on 1 single page
To build a new story from scratch I often struggle to keep the throughlines separate. It can be confusing what piece of the story idea belongs where.
To make it more understandable what's going in my story, I was experimenting a bit how I could visualise it.
I made a breakdown the of the story, starting from the goal and using the argument to show all throughlines beneath and on one single page.
For brainstorming and mind mapping I using an app (iThoughtsX) with an org-chart-structure. Notes I take also directly in the app.
The solution works pretty well for me as I can see on on page what's the story about and what are the different throughlines are saying, doing, thinking ...
