Worldbuilding #14 – Metals

Welcome to the first article of my new Worldbuilding series. This, in many ways, is a sequel to my previous Worldbuilding series.

This series will help educate you on a variety of topics that are important to designing your world that you likely never thought about before.

Anti-climax is a great words that describes a great plot device that, like a magic trick, you have to be careful in its execution. A poor execution can lead to a lot of angry viewers.

IWSG – Done and Scared

IWSG badgeSo it is the first Wednesday of the month and it is time for the IWSG.

Today, or rather about 30 minutes ago, I finished my book. Templar Five is written and is now with an editor to tell me all the mistakes I made. It hasn’t hit me yet that I have finished, as I am very very exhausted. In the last 4 days I’ve done about 15,000 words.
