IT'S NOT EASY coming up with new content all the time for YouTube. Sometimes it's also hard to present what is it you're trying to say in your video clearly, to maximally engage your audience.
This is especially so if your video is going to be especially long or is in a narrative format.
Composing a script beforehand will go a long way in addressing these problems upfront, so you don't end up having to piece together a storyline when you're up to your neck in post-production, and then find yourself needing to re-shoot scenes or redo voiceovers.
By using mind maps, WriteMapper will help you sort out your thoughts on what you want to say in your video, by structuring the video's contents. The script writing process is simplified into three main steps with the app.
1️⃣ Outline Your Content
First, create a skeleton of your script, putting down the main ideas into a mind map. There should be a root or main node, which branches out into individual sub-points. The app makes the mind map interface interactive, so you can manipulate it however you wish.
2️⃣ Write Little Bits of Stuff
Each node on the mind map also expands into a distraction-free content editor. In it, you can write more about that node's topic. This relieves you from the pressure of having to write the whole script at once, and allows you approach the writing in little bite-sized pieces.
3️⃣ Get Done!
Lastly, when you're done writing, you can export all of it into a text document for further editing or proofreading. There's even a live preview function that'll let you review your work as you go along writing it.
And there you have it! Your YouTube script is mostly completed, and all that's left to do is to put the finishing touches on it and it'll be ready to be used for filming or production.
