Worldbuilding Wednesday – Step-by-Step for Ocean Currents

Since my step-by-step of tectonic plates was pretty well received (and fun to do!), I wanted to do another one on ocean currents. I had intended to do it pretty soon after the first one but have been derailed about a billion times. Well, here it finally is! And like last time I have a little disclaimer: this guide is meant Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Step-by-Step for Ocean Currents

Worldbuilding Wednesday/Spotlight – My Favorite Conworlds

It’s been a looooong day, so I thought I’d do something quick and fun for today’s Worldbuilding Wednesday, namely a spotlight post about my favorite conworlds. I’ve realized lately that my favorite fiction franchises aren’t always synonymous with my favorite conworlds. For example, I love the Buffy franchise in many ways, but strictly in terms of worldbuilding it does a few Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday/Spotlight – My Favorite Conworlds

Worldbuilding Wednesday – Step-by-Step for Tectonic Plates

In this very special rendition of Worldbuilding Wednesday, I’m going to give you a step-by-step guide to how I made the tetonic plates for my conworld Erziyye. This guide is meant to help with designing scientifically plausible (and neat-looking), but not scientifically accurate maps. Some worldbuilders (like myself) enjoy the idea of having fairly detailed geological information on their maps but may Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Step-by-Step for Tectonic Plates

Worldbuilding Wednesday – Current Currents!

That’s right, in this post I’m gonna show you my current currents! Yay! In the end of last week I had some lovely worldbuilding session with my friend and eternal geology-consultant Grace. My currents are now awesome-looking! Much better than before. I get so thrilled when I look at them, haha! Here they are: Click for a bigger picture. Doesn’t Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Current Currents!

Worldbuilding Wednesday – And now for something completely different.

If you don’t know what the title refers to, you need to watch more Monty Python. Anyway, today we are indeed doing something completely different. I wanted to show you my ocean currents but they aren’t totally done and the idea of putting up a map with things missing irks me so I’ll hold off till next week. Instead, I’m Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – And now for something completely different.

Worldbuilding Wednesday – Tectonic Plates, My Wildcards

So, I know I posted my tectonic plates a few weeks back already buuuuut… I kind of redid them. Entirely. They’re much awesomer now! I wanna say a big thank you to my friend Grace, who is a fantastic and patient and knowledgable and has helped me loads with getting my plates in order! Here are my plates now: Pretty Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Tectonic Plates, My Wildcards

Worldbuilding Wednesday – Clean Lines

I am on a bit of a worldbuilding high right now. I’m getting some awesome feedback on my Erziyye map from a writer friend and geology geek, and basically all I want to do is work on the map right now. Sadly work, this cold and my slightly obsessive need for feedback from said friend on changes I make is Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Clean Lines

Worldbuilding Wednesday – Attack of the little red arrows

What’s this? A worldbuilding Wednesday post actually on a Wednesday! Amazing! Today I bring you… that’s right, more maps! Sorry, just not done with ’em yet! I’m having a lot of fun though, so I don’t mind. Recently I’ve been adding some layers with information on them to my map, the sort of stuff that’ll be useful to know when Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Attack of the little red arrows

Sunday Double Whammy! Worldbuilding + Flash Fiction

Last week I was crazy tired. I’m not sure why, maybe I’m still just adjusting to being back at work, but blogging in the evenings was just not a thing that was happening at all! So since I missed Worldbuilding Wednesday and Flash Fiction Friday, I’m doing a special post today combining them. Yay! This week I finished the paper Continue reading Sunday Double Whammy! Worldbuilding + Flash Fiction

Worldbuilding Wednesday – Islands!

I haven’t had time to do much worldbuilding since last week because I was away for the weekend, but I did manage a bit of progress. I feel I’m getting close to being done enough with my map to transfer it to a digital medium and start adding colors and textures. Exciting! Tonight, I worked a bit on a series Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Islands!
