...we're really crappy with numbers.

Last night I finally forced myself to do something I should have done long ago -- sit down and work out a timeline for the whole Darkness and Light trilogy. I mean, on the first draft I was flinging around phrases like "Eighteen months later" and "she had known X for two years now" with only the vaguest notion of whether this was actually correct. And as I discovered, in many cases it wasn't.

Not grossly incorrect in most of the cases, mind you; but there were still some definite inconsistencies, and it took me a whole evening of squinting at the screen, skimming chapters, and counting off months on my fingers (when I wasn't using the calculator to perform simple sums -- I did say "crappy", didn't I?) to fix them. I probably haven't caught all of them yet, either, but I'll keep my eyes open on the final re-read...

There is one slight remaining Flint, but I can easily rationalize it if anybody notices. :)
