A couple of years ago I used my NaNoWriMo coupon to bag on to a copy of Aeon Timeline 2 I’ve fiddled with it before, but I’ve just recently realized it may be the tool I need to pick up the narrative thread of the story. I’m a single mom, and there are many moments I just can’t keep up with daily writing. Some days, I’m just happy to be able to get up and go to work and get my bills paid. A few weeks ago, when I got up the gumption to take another look at it, I found I’d both lost my place and had a billion threads to tie up, give or take a million or two. So I opened a fresh timeline and got to work.
It’s excruciating and unbearable in someways – lots of scenes to track, and I’m doing my absolute damnedest to not look at the quality of words in this still unpolished draft. On the other hand, wow, what a thing I will have when I am done! You might check out the program if you get a chance. Some aspects of it are pretty intuitive, but to be frank, you may end up hitting the help documents and even YouTube to understand it’s finer points – it can be a bit fiddly.
