In this episode, Kylie Ansett explains how creating a mindmap for your book can help you produce your best work. Based in Sydney Australia, Kylie is the bestselling author of two books and the guru behind an online course that teaches new authors how to write their first books. Join us as she explains how a mindmap helps you transfer all of your ideas and thoughts onto paper in such a way that can guide your vision, validate topics and ultimately structure your book’s contents. Using this handy tool is a great way to organize your thoughts and sift through any excess mental clutter – something that authors of all experience levels could benefit from!
