Anyone who has Aeon Timeline or has thought about buying might like a heads up on up-coming developments. For those who don’t know anything about it Aeon Timeline is a tool for building a calendar of events that take place in a story you are writing. It allows for a wide range of calendars including BC, prehistoric and fantasy. Mac users also benefit from integration with Scrivener.
The biggest news for PC users is that with the release of Scrivener 188.8.131.52 for Windows the ability to work with meta data (which I haven’t looked at myself) allows for products such as Aeon Timeline to integrate with Scrivener. The developers at Scribble Code hope to release a free update to Windows users sometime in July to give that integration. I bought Aeon Timeline last year as a NaNoWriMo offer but have held back using it much. This change will let me use it in earnest.
Other, longer term changes include lots of UI updates and requested features. More news when I have it.
Do you use Aeon Timeline? I’d really like to hear of any success stories and where it’s made a difference to your writing. Do get in touch!
