Here’s one really useful resource I’ve been turning to quite a lot in the last week.
timeanddate.com is an interesting tool for looking up worldwide weather patterns and times for sunset and sunrise around the world. I’ve been using this last function the most as I try and work out what time everything’s happening in my novel (go to the Sun & Moon tab on the main page for this feature). It has info on an international level so, if you’re writing a real-world story, you won’t go wrong using this website to double-check your moon phases, sunsets and sunrises for accuracy and consistency.
If you’re a fantasy writer like me, and assuming your world is the same size (roughly) as Earth, you could pick a country/continent you think might mirror the locations in your book and use it as a reference tool for working out your day and night patterns — and then embellish/adjust to your heart’s content! 😉
omg that is fantastic. Thank you so much, Rosanna! I’ll add it to the main list.
This couldn’t come at a better time. I always have issues keeping my days/nights straight. In the WIP I’m editing right now I accidentally made it afternoon – morning – night in that order and in the same scene lol
