A way to keep track of where we are in our plot outline and to make it easy to see what we've done and have left to do.
A +1 in my book, no pun intended. Writing is hard enough when we have to keep track of what is done and isn't. I support this.
That sounds great
Not sure if this is the place to say it ... but if we had a way to dub in plot elements in the story and highlight them "need to write" "Drafted" "Written" "Edited" "Done" something like that. Ideally I would like the timeline to point to the chapters so this would make the timeline useful enough that I would buy it. Then throw on a filter for the different stages and it's a jackpot in my book.
I could throw a plot point into the timeline "About here she makes that new sword" and then come back to it later to write the chapter. It would also mean that looking at the timeline I can quickly see where the story is finished vs needs help.
We'll be rolling out a new update to the site sometime tonight or tomorrow morning that will, amongst other things, enable "Story Homepage" for every story you create.
We might be able to look into adding an automatic "checklist" functionality to this page in the future, but for now you'll at least be able to look through story elements you've recently worked on and leave some notes for yourself for next time you come back.
