Since I didn’t do my worldbuilding stream Sunday, I don’t have any fun tidbits of progress to share with you today. Instead, I want to talk a little about one of the hardest things about worldbuilding (especially if you’re new): where to start? There are a lot of different advice on this out there, and the advice I’m about to Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – My Fundamental Questions
I ended up not posting a Worldbuilding Wednesday last week, as some of you may have noticed. I probably had a good reason at the time, but to be honest I genuinely can’t remember what it was. Oh well! In the end, skipping a post turned out to be a good choice because my worldbuilding stream last Sunday ended up Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – When Dots Connect
Reader, I abandoned the challenge. But honestly, that’s okay. It was a little too much a little too soon, and since it was a spontaneous decision to join and not part of my original plan for the month, I’m not kicking myself about it. I lasted about 5 days before dropping out. It wasn’t actually the writing itself that was Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Too Much, Too Soon
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
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
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
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!
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.
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
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
