Go to CNET. Downloads. Look up "project manager/management software"
Choose MS or MAC
Choose free or free to try or "pay"
There are plenty.

i.e. more detail
Narrow your results

By price
** Free (16)
See all
By platforms
** Mac (16)
By Category
** Productivity Software (16)
Calendar & Time Management Software (13)
Contact Management Software (3)
Business Software (2)
Project Management Software (2)
Brainstorming and Mind-Mapping Softwar

OR I do it for you.
What I am talking about.

A few looked interesting. Change a few parameters and get others.

Yeah, I think a PM tool might be too much for me I do not have Visio on my mac, just my work windows laptop, so that is out. I might change my mind and buy it as some point but for now I found:

Aeon Timeline http://www.scribblecode.com/

Which is not free, but does at least have a 20 day demo, and is under current development. It supports "fantasy" calendars which is cool, story arch's and so on. It specially focused on time lines for novels. Only messed with it for about an hour last night but looks like it might work well.

Now the fine part will be to work through my published novels and translate "It took about a week to ..." and "the next day..." to dates.

That can be laborious. Good luck.
