The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter — it's the difference between a lightning bug and the lightning. — Mark Twain

I think this a "house style" question; there's no right answer.

comment Outlining Structures for Romance Novels
@what What you suggest is a process for any novel. "Outline process for heroic fantasy novel" sounds like "plotting tool" to me.

comment Alternative to mindmap software
@cherhan I'm sorry, I don't understand what you're asking. I am suggesting that you try a particular piece of software; I don't have any books to recommend. If you need help structuring your ideas into a plot, that's a different question. Search the site or post a new question for the community.

@Jay The cat rules have to do with genetics. Color is carried on the X gene, so 99% of cats with two colors in their coats are females (there are a few XXYs, and Japanese Mi-ke bobtail cats are an exception). The gene for "orange tabby" is on the Y, so those are similarly 99% male. But you'd have to know a little about cat genetics to make those assumptions.
