Your lore: organized

Fictional History Timeline

Notion Template

Organize the lore and history of your fictional world. Keep track of events, characters, groups, and locations.

Why did I create this?

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.
