For years my prose was created the old fashioned way. A typewriter and note cards. Now I use my Mac. And digital notecards. Think of small, 3×5-like notecards on your Mac screen and you’ll see the power of the digital metaphor.
Mixing And Matching And Organizing Cards
There’s something reassuring and physical about using notecards in a writing project. They’re easy to organize and easy to update.
Bring the benefits of paper notecards to your Mac’s screen and feel the power of digital technology.
SuperNotecard is a Mac app for writers that helps you capture and organize content, ideas, notes, for any writing project.
And, it does it the old fashioned way but with all the benefits of your Mac’s organizational skills. SuperNotecard is a writing project manager with a twist. It’s part modern tool, part throwback to a 3×5 index card era.
Create your title, give it a description, and create cards for the timeline. Each card can be edited with a click, moved around onscreen in typical drag and drop fashion, and saved into decks of cards.
Moveable cards are an excellent method to experiment with story lines, drop in characters, add facts and background details.
SuperNotecard can be connected in relationships to other cards. For example, a simple click can display where in the timeline a character is introduced.
All cards have a title and description. Text is easily edited and highlighted. Flag cards that need to be marked for editing or additional work.
Cards can also be used to track and inventory related elements and provide a bibliography. Tabs are used to relate cards to categories. Cards can be in columns or rows.
This is the perfect blend of old school and new school; the convenience of the card metaphor with all the benefits of a computer database. SuperNotecards files are compatible between Mac and Windows PCs.
As a tool, writers will find the app to be instantly usable for smaller projects, and a bit cumbersome to work through longer writing projects. And, the bigger your Mac’s screen, the better.
