…or an exercise in world building.
The thing about fiction writing is that you can make your own mythos and lore. This often leads to reshaping existing maps or making new ones. In my case, it’s both. My sci-fi/fantasy series starts in our world in the not-so-distant future and is linked to a world born of fantasy.
I am tearing down to build it back up. How, well, I am imagining a world with no United States. That lore story will come a little later on this blog.
It takes a lot of work to create a new world out of an old one as well as out of thin air. I know I have an map of the fantasy world somewhere. I will have to update that one before reposting it.
As you can see from this little snippet, I have been hammering out a LOT of details. I have to write them down to keep them straight and keep the continuity flowing. Nothing jars you out of a new world like ever-changing details. I want them to fully fleshed out and solid.
Until next time, Happy Writing!
