World Building Woes

For some time now I've been developing my Muzik Chronicles world.  For some time I focused entirely on the blog but lately I've been developing the world more through series of novelettes.

I have to say, I love it.  The stories never make me any money but I really don't care.

However!  I have now gotten to a point where the universe is expanding.  New characters, new planets, terms... the list goes on.  How do I keep track of all of this?  The blog does help me keep track of species and planets.  But the characters.... I honestly don't know how George RR Martin does it.

It almost seems like it's time to make an Excel sheet?  Or something?  I'm not sure if that would make this more or less complicated...

  1. Hi, just wanted to drop you a note to say that I'm facing the same problem with my series.

    I know that some writers keep a bible in some form or another. I guess it would printed out from time to time. A timeline would work in any format, index cards, spreadsheet.

    I use Scrivener and I'm experimenting with putting notes in the Research folder. The folders are titled: People, Places and Things at the moment.

    Maybe George has something on his blog?

    Best wishe!

    1. Haha! Knowing him he probably follows the Tolkien method and has a separate book written of JUST background story.

    2. I struggle with it. I did index cards first, then character sheets, like in D&D. It's a developing project. I might end up with an extra book.

      Wonder if anybody would read it? LOL
