Worldbuilding dates and times

One of the things that writers have to keep track of is details of characters and - when you're messing with multiple worlds or other factors - dates of events.

I've been working on a spreadsheet for Snug Ship, and thought you all might be interested in a glimpse of the spreadsheet I did while writing In Arcadia.  Lining up Earth time and Muinan time involved so many errors...

  1. I feel you on this. I have a story I'm working on where, for no reason other then it felt WRONG to write it otherwise, I have two parallel worlds that are out of linear sync because they track the calendar year differently AND there is a time lapse. Because why not?
