What I didn't address in that post is HOW to make an author's bible. The reason I'm doing that now is that, as I'm working on the sequel to The Talented, I've adapted my bible-creating method to account for that change.
One of the things that I've always done, and still do, is put my bible in alphabetical order when it comes to names and places. It makes it easier for me to find them, and it also lets me know if I'm starting every name with a K or an M, which I'm not sure why I try to do but are definitely problems of mine. Here is an example of my bible early in The Talented process, back when it was still draft 1 or 2.
One thing that it did right, however, is have a nice timeline at the end of my bible that I could look at for reference. This is especially important if your book is stretching months instead of years, or if it is part of a series, because if you get the timeline wrong and a reader notices, it can really through them off. Here's a sample of that timeline, without any real spoilers for those of you who haven't read The Talented yet.
One change that I made in the bible for the second book was to put anything new in bold. This helps me find new things faster, and also lets me know what can't be changed because it's already included in a published book. Here's a snapshot of what's new this time around:
On that note, if you prefer a more polished author's bible, that is entirely up to you. Many books include indices at the back of them to help readers keep track of characters and places as well, and an author's bible can easily be adapted to that purpose, just take out the unimportant (to reader) details like hair length and anything that could spoil the plot or give too much detail too soon, such as a completed timeline.
If you want a more personal touch, or something that appeals to your crafty side, you can make your own journal to carry around with you. Here's a picture of an easy(ish) DIY journal, and a picture of one I made myself so that if I'm away from my computer I can plot story ideas in the front and keep track of characters and places in the back.
