When brainstorming your arguments or trying to figure out impacts, mind-mapping can be a great way to organize your thoughts. There is a lot of great software out there you can try and buy, but I use https://www.text2mindmap.com/ in a pinch. You can type the text on the page and get an instant mind map for free. Below I’ve sketched out the beginning of an impact brainstorm – all needing to be substantiated by evidence to be valid, but it’s good to get all your ideas out there then narrow down to what will be most effective and persuasive.
