The Pencil Project

 Many times just to get the creative process off the ground I will have need of some type of visual planning software. I have not found the perfect software and all to often find myself searching for that illusive tool. In my hopes to find an all-inclusive solution that would render the hundreds of other tested software obsolete, there have been some favorites. I will be listing those findings here over the next year. This is the newest candidate, it is free, useful and it can be found here.
