Using Aeon Timeline for a Quick and Simple Blogging Content Calendar

 

The day I first came across Aeon timeline I was wrapped.

I’d been searching for a way to record all my character info.  I especially wanted a way to view how the characters related to locations and then how both characters and locations related to the timeline in my story. Three (3) years on and I'm still using Aeon Timeline on a daily basis.

I use it for both my fiction writing and also for planning.  Yep! That’s correct, you can also use Aeon Timeline for planning events, blogs, projects, book launches - loads of other writer and blogger stuff.

Fast Brainstorming

Aeon Timeline is brilliant for brainstorming fast.  The process is to create an 'event' for each blog idea you have and just list them down.

Then you go through them and categorise them to suit your blog and your thought process.  I use these categories:

  • Expert Tips
  • Community
  • Promotion
  • Demo
  • Webinar
  • Case Study
  • Brand Awareness

You can create your own within Aeon Timeline to suit your own...

If you like a minimal view of your timeline in Aeon Timeline simply remove the dates from the Event view.

Your dates are still on the Event, you just don’t see them in the main Timeline or Relationship view unless you expand the event to see all details.

To Hide the Dates:

1. From your opened Timeline

2. Select Display

3. Untick “Show Event Dates”

4. Save, and you are good to go


Happy Timelining and Happy Writing!

3 Ways Aeon Timeline & “Relationship View” Improves my Writing

aeon timeline Jul 04, 2019

Aeon Timeline is my 1st and only choice to brainstorm and outline both my fiction and non-fiction writing.  I use it for my blogging calendar as well as project planning for course launches and for my fiction series.

A tip I’d like to share today is the Relationship View feature.

Your timeline view is great for getting your ideas out of your head and into the software, but once you have that a quick self-edit is very useful before you start writing, either syncing with Scrivener or Ulysses, or whatever your writing method of choice is.

 

3 Reasons to utilise Relationship View

1. Use “Group By” to filter

Filter your scenes by ARC, using the Group By icon and you can quickly see any anomalies.

Plus, I’m a bit light on the Romance for a Romance novel

 

2. Who are your scene “Participants & Observers”

Keeping track of your characters can be tricky, especially if you are...

Why I Love Aeon Timeline

Plotter or Pantzer?

I am loving Aeon Timeline, just loving it.  I can outline quickly and easily and then sync with Scrivener and Boom! I’m writing my next novel.

 

How about you? Are you a PLOTTER or a PANTZER?  My routine use to be to handwrite an outline and draw lines for how the characters would meet and mingle.  There would be loads of post-its and Fluro highlighter.  I’d feel super proud of my creation and then I’d start writing the 1st paragraph and immediately I’d think of a change, a major change.  Like that scene where they first kiss (I’m a romance writer), should be swapped with that other scene, that actually I think I’ll cut altogether. 

Plus I don’t think the hero should be called Hunter, he should now be called Brock.  Hmmm, there goes all my timeline planning and notes.  It’s really not that easy to make changes to a hard copy, is it?

Do you ever come across...
