Trello is an online tool that helps you organize a project and collaborate with other users–useful for everything from remodeling your kitchen to work projects to plotting your novel.
Trello is often used for managing processes and pipelines; the left-to-right Lists framework seems to suit this kind of use quite naturally. But Douglas has dreamt up a whole new way of using this tool: he harnesses cards and lists to plan out the parts of a novel. Douglas says: “I am using this board to collect and collate my notes and process for a book I am planning. I am able to keep everything in one place, and structure/re-plan in an ad-hoc fashion by moving cards around between lists.” The lists he’s using are Concept, Characters, Plot, Themes, Motifs, Recurring Motifs, Endings, Beginnings, and Research.
