If your book is historical, you may want to include a chronology or timeline. Memoirs are other types of literature that benefit from the inclusion of a timeline.
A timeline provides the reader a way to keep track of certain important dates as the story progresses.
A chronology can be placed either in the front matter or back matter. If knowing the order of events is essential to understanding the story, include the timeline in the front matter.
Even if you don’t plan on including a timeline in your book, creating one often helps you organize your material better. There are many free templates available online or you could create one on Canva. Don’t be afraid to be creative!
Assignment: Make a chronology for your book.
