What is a Worgan?

I get email every once in a while from people who are still using Worgan or have just stumbled upon it.

Worgan means Writers Organizer and was the first shareware program I wrote. The concepts I developed in that led to me creating YourOtherMind and Visual Desk. While Worgan was very useful I knew I could create something more robust and faster by starting over… hence YourOtherMind. Both have note organizational capabilities, brainstorming, submission tracking, world building and so on but YourOtherMind (in my opinion) is more polished, more flexible, and easier to use.

Why didn’t I keep the name Worgan?

YourOtherMind wasn’t compatible with Worgan… same concept but the data was quite differently structured. I thought keeping it the same would be confusing.

If you were ever a user of Worgan please give YourOtherMind a try and let me know what you think. Thanks.
