Keeping track of details in one novel can be an overwhelming task. My handy-dandy spreadsheet does the job for me.
But what happens when one novel becomes two and then two become three? And then you make a change in one . . . and it has to be updated in two and then three.
This is enough to drive a person crazy or at least keep them entertained or maybe keep them from sleeping. Who knows?
My solution. As always my spreadsheet. I have now added a new spreadsheet to my collection. I keep one spreadsheet per novel and have found an extra one for details that need to be remembered from one book to the next helps.
I can remember the big details, but what about the ones like an address, a description of a room, a character’s sibling.
Without a spreadsheet I am lost.
Any tips that might help me?
Thanks for reading . . .
