And now, let's see what Mark has to say.
Excel in Writing
I also have three groups of characters in three locations. Their actions have to be coordinated, so I need to track who is doing what on each day.
I’ll also have to track the positions of Mars and Venus, as well as phases of the moon. J.R.R. Tolkien once remarked something to the effect that he could not have Aragorn look up one night and see a full moon, then have Gimli look up a couple nights later and also see a full moon. He kept charts on phases of the moon, and also the speed of Gandalf’s horse Shadowfax.
Learn from the greatest.
Anyone else use Excel when you're writing?
