I just got off the phone with a friend who asked me how I get past writer's block. I thought I might share this

Mind mapping... that's a very interesting technique and anything that helps me deal with writer's block is worth giving a shot! Thanks for posting!

I do have one question right now. Using this technique, has it ever resulted in a different ending than you had originally planned?

I am so pleased to hear that this technique may help other writers. To answer your question, most of the time it does not lead to a different ending to a story for me.

Ah... That makes perfect sense; thanks for the details! And I have to applaud you for such creative thinking; it would never have occured to me to look to a business book for inspiration.
