Concept Mapping

Concept mapping is a tool used to burrow down into the meaning of your work. Drill down deep enough and the surface concepts of your work intertwine and coalesce into one meaning. This helps you identify the underlying theme of your work, create a word palette for your writing and build support for any thematic architecture you plan on implementing. This is a great tool for getting your head around a project and finding purpose in a given work.
