Organize the lore and history of your fictional world. Keep track of events, characters, groups, and locations.
While rewatching the TV show, LOST, I wanted to get a better understanding of its complicated timeline of events. I created a Notion dashboard – LOST Timeline – that organized all the events of the show and allowed me to view the show's timeline from a variety of different perspectives. After sharing this dashboard on social media, people asked for a template they could use themselves.
Also, I myself am an amateur fiction writer. I've been using this structure of a timeline in Notion to organize my own future story's timeline, O Burning Star.
Keep track of all the cities, towns, regions, landmarks, and landforms of your world.
Keep track of every individual event in your story, whether the event takes place in the past or occurs during the plot.
Keep track of the teams, gangs, tribes, and races of your world.
Keep track of all the different characters in your story.
Create unique months and historical eras connected to the Events database for a well-sorted historical timeline.
The Notion app is the ultimate tool for every organizer to create the kind of workspace they truly want:
Choose between working in your Notion workspace with either a bold dark interface or a classic white interface.
Customize your Notion workspace to perfectly align with your unique work style – from layout, images, widgets, colors, and beyond!
Share your work with friends, collaborate, and add comments for feedback or critique.
Your work automatically syncs across devices whether you're using Notion in a browser or through the desktop and mobile app.
