I am always up for time-killing activities on the web, and Becky over at Book Reports has found one that is actually useful. This little site, Xtimeline.com lets you create a timeline for a project. You could use this for scheduling your baby’s developmental milestones, or as Becky points out, you could use it to timeline your story’s plot. I know that in my thesis, there are instances where time doesn’t match up because I’ve forgotten how long I’ve said things have happened. I plan to use this nifty system to chart my thesis. You could use it for your books too. If you want to see how others have used the site for fictional works, look at the Star Trek History or the Harry Potter one.
