I’m fascinated by how much there is to learn about using computer programs. To that end, I’ve made it my side quest to show the wonders of a few programs and techniques I use to keep track of all the random stuff necessary to actually craft a world.
Among them is Aeon Timeline, an amazing software only 13 months old in its current incarnation. Which means no one has reached expert user level yet. After all, you need 10K hours of practice, and 10K hours have not yet passed since this software came to market.
Thus, I’m still learning, and I want to share as I go, because once you’ve got the hang of this tool, it may replace losing post-it notes for some of you. And so I present to you Aeon Timeline 2: Introduction or Everything You Want To Know BEFORE Getting Started.
This morning has been crazy, but I’ve got this week’s CyborgScribe tutorial up! The amazing process of syncing a timeline with your Scrivener projects! A single timeline can sync to several different Scrivener projects, but on the Scrivener side, only one timeline per project. Check it out, and have fun!
Didn’t cover nearly as much as I wanted to in the first part, and crisped up presentation a bit this time. Take a look, and please comment. Let me know what you liked, what you didn’t, and how I can do better.
He’s slick, quick, and ready and able to keep any project from a screen play, to a historical project, to a fictional world on track. Yes, even a fictional world with ten days in a week, three weeks in a month, and thirteen months in a year. Below, you’ll find Part 1 of the Basics on this bad boy. It’s worth the 15 minutes. Trust me.
