Oh my...this is tremendous. Such detail and such work. You do love writing.

It evolves. It's more work to not do a timeline because then with each book you need to remember (or I used to have it on little slips of paper, which were stacked and hard to find what I needed). This can rest on my desktop and be easy to access when I am trying to remember how old someone must be in a new book.
