i find a hand written book does the trick for me...and yes a calender for time-line work...but i prefer the book over-all...you can write faster than you can type (i hope)

Hi there, I've got this huge story in my mind, with an enormous plot. As I already know the bigger storyline, I've been jumping around my story adding chapters here and there, still adding subplots, just as I like. But I struggle to keep the overview and weave different plot lines. Right now a have an enormous word-document and I use headers and the index function to review and manage what I've got. But that's growing and growing. I'm even using a calendar and I date every scene to make sure that time-lines are consistent.
So I wonder: how do you plot your storyline and keep track of it? Do you use mind-maps? lists? a separate file? Any best practices around?
