Aeon Timeline: Outlining Made Easy

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...

First Earth Age, Evidence For Creation The First Earth Age, Archaeological Evidence For Creation and Against Evolution Below we see a 'footprint in time.' The below footprint is impressed into solid stone in New Mexico U.S.A. The rock that it is impressed into is conservatively dated at 10 million years old, the University of New Mexico dates the rock formation in which the footprint is indented into back to 50 million years ago.

This is a comprehensive list of such artifacts; artifacts that many believe should have never existed given the discerned age/period of their creation. In June 1936 (or 1934 according to some accounts), Max Hahn and his wife Emma were on a walk when they noticed a rock with wood protruding from its core. They decided to take the oddity home and later cracked it open with a hammer and a chisel.
