  1. Yeah…and since I’m con­tinu­ally demon­strat­ing to myself how bad I am at it, it’s prob­ably time to aban­don the whole thing!

  2. Hello Ian,

    The timeline view in StoryMill is designed for scenes that take place rel­at­ively close togeth­er in time. It does not cur­rently work very well for epic storylines that take place over time scales of sev­er­al years or for scenes that last less than 10 minutes or so.

    This is a dif­fi­cult prob­lem (rep­res­ent­ing scenes in such widely vary­ing time scales) and we chose to tar­get what 90% of writers would need for our first ver­sion of the timeline. We are eval­u­at­ing solu­tions so we can make the timeline use­ful to more people in the future.

    We would love to hear more about your spe­cif­ic needs. You can con­tact us at http://www.marinersoftware.com/

    Thanks for tak­ing the time to eval­u­ate StoryMill and we hope we can make it more use­ful for you in the future.
