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

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

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

Coffee Shot is NOT an ARC it should be a location

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

1-ARC

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

Look at your scenes with the view of Participant and Observer to review how active your characters are.

2-Character

Moving away from timeline view and creating a list of scenes is another way to review your story.

3-Scene Order

Does it make sense when you view your scenes in a list?

Are you an Aeon Timeline user?  Do you use any of these methods for self-editing your timeline?

If you don’t use Aeon Timeline, what method do you use?  I’m always curious about other authors’ methods.
