Flash Fiction Friday – Composition

Today, on my Friday indie game stream, I played a lovely little puzzle game called Engare. It was really fun, and very beautiful. Like, just look at this level selection screen: Pretty, isn’t it? I really enjoyed the game, and it caused patterns to be on my mind, so they’re sort of the theme of this weeks rather lengthy Flash Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Composition

Flash Fiction Friday – The First Stitch

I’m doing some worldbuilding for a story of mine on stream on Sunday, and thinking about it made me write this little “off screen” scene from that story. Enjoy! The First Stitch  “Well…” he said, turning the belt over in his hand to expect the other side once more. “At least it is well-made.” “Did you expect anything less, my Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The First Stitch

Flash Fiction Friday – Serving Tea

Flash! Fiction! Friday! It’s been a while, huh? This little piece is a sort of behind-the-scenes snippet from a story I started working on last year. It was originally meant to be a short story but it sorta grew into a novella. Oops! Writing this snippet really made me wanna work on that story again! Hope you enjoy it. The Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Serving Tea

Flash Fiction Friday – Next Year’s Beads

Since it is the holiday season, I’ve been thinking a lot about creating holidays for fictional worlds. The other day I had an idea for a tradition I may use some day in a book, so I wrote this little piece below: The ribbons are slippery between my fingers, and the house is quiet except for the gentle ringing of Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Next Year’s Beads

Flash Fiction Friday – Games

It’s been a while since I did Flash Fiction Friday! Feels good to be back to it. No Dixit card tonight, instead I bring you a random scene. It was inspired by a dream I had the other night, just a short scene that gave me an idea for a detail to add to a culture in my worldbuilding. Here, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Games

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!

Twice Fortnightly – Post Untitled

Yeah, no, no titles coming to me tonight. I’ve written like 5 blog posts today for the Blog Ahead challenge, that might be why. Just gonna get straight to it. This week I have: Finished working on Erziyye’s currents! Yay! Will be posting about them on Wednesday. Done a good bit of NaNo prep in terms of worldbuilding (not quite Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Post Untitled
