Profiling Personalities

Given my IWSG post this month, I am working diligently towards a goal of sustaining myself. Not just because I want to be self-reliant, but because I have to be. I’m sure another place would open up to me and I can move and live there for a spell, but I don’t want to keep doing that. As they say, Need is the Mother of Invention.

Look at the name of the ship. From Red vs Blue.

I want to chronicle my journey as it pertains to writing. This blog is a major part of me, and all of you who visit my site have made it what it is. This year I expect to get to 50k views. So it’s only fitting that I keep everyone up to date.

However, this is a Writing Education blog, so I will try to throw some education in, for good measure.

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. Unlike the last one, which focused on Geography and Map Making, this series will cover everything else that goes into Worldbuilding. The goal with this is to be able to answer questions that many other Worldbuilding sources will ask you. 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.

Today, we take your design and make a globe. Enjoy.

Worldbuilding #12 – Municipal

worldbuilding logo2Welcome to the second to last article of the Map-Making portion of the Worldbuilding series. Today we do a brief talk about Municipals. This won’t go into detail about the different type of Municipals; those will be a discussion at a later time, as each one requires its own article.

Today we’ll generate some random Municipal locations, such as Cities, Villages, Towns, and Hamlets. After that, I will show you a technique that will allow you to clean up your map for finalization.

In this tutorial, we are going to do some steps that are necessary for later steps, which you’ll be glad we did. These elements will help us to clearly define the Oceans, the Continents, Lakes, and Islands. Read more

Worldbuilding #11 – Wetlands

WorldWelcome to another edition of worldbuilding. I know I said in the last tutorial that I was done doing Rivers. However, Wetlands are quite a bit different from rivers. It is best to think of Wetlands as a combination as a water source (river, lake, ocean) and land.

There is a lot of information to go over today. Lots to learn.

Jungian Psychology – A to Z Challenge, Literary Terms

JOne complaint I get during my A to Z Challenge is the length of my articles. I’ll admit they are quite long, and there are many blogs people want to visit and mine takes a bit of time to get through. I do apologize for that, but since last year, a number of my AtoZ article have been viewed throughout the year, so while I do this for AtoZ, I also do it for others visiting my site in the future.

Today we have Jungian Psychology.
