Aeon Timeline: Outlining Made Easy
Aeon Timeline is a great way to plan a novel. I broke down and bought Aeon Timeline. It was $39.99 in the AppStore, but so far it has been worth every penny. Even though there is currently not a Windows version, I have found the program to be probably one of the greatest tools for planning out multiple story arcs, keeping track of character relationships and viewing all of the subtle nuances of my novel at a glance. After watching a detailed video tutorial found on Scribblecode’s website, I was off and running, plotting out my fictional future timeline with ease. The interface is simplified down so that an author can choose to place three different types of markers on the timeline: events, entities and arcs. Events are things that happen on the timeline, but they are much more than that. Entities are not just characters. Arcs are like story arcs. One cool feature is that the calendar is not bound by the real world. Above all I found it easy to use. Like this: Like Loading...
