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
Lately I’ve been itching to breathe a little more life back into my blog. Other than my Flash Fiction Friday posts, I don’t really post anything regularly and I miss the days when I used to. What I miss the most, though, are my Worldbuilding Wednesday posts. I honestly can’t remember why I stopped writing those. I guess I just Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – The Return + Inktober Writer’s Gauntlet
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
Ho, boy! I do not feel like someone on vacation. Technically I’ve been off since Friday but the weekend, including Friday and today have been super busy, both with day job things and other things. Still, tomorrow I should get the last of the urgent day job stuff and some cleaning out of the way, and then I’ll be able to settle Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – My Vacation Starts When?
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
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
Normally I like to forget that it’s Wednesday and end up doing my worldbuilding post on a Thursday, but this week I thought I’d mix it up a bit by forgetting it was Monday and doing my weekly update on a Tuesday. Yay, variation! So what have I been up to? Well, I have: Poked my MS. It has poked Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Whoops, Tuesday!
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
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
