This weeks is Favorite Games.
Another round of A-to-Z Blog Challenge, and we are now on B. Only seems like yesterday I was on A. Yeah I know, lame joke. Today is B and I am doing Bestiary and Balkinization. I’m sure if you’ve played enough video games you’ve heard of the first one, but the second one might come off as “What?”
As always, I will discuss the two topics and then find a way to connect them together. You will decide if I accomplished that or failed with your comments below.
I will soon start writing a fantasy series and started trying to picture the world where my story takes place, but was having difficulty. I decided that I would try to draw it out, but I lacked the ability to draw and even if I try to fake it, I didn’t know how to make my land appear organic and nearly random. While there are many tools out there to help out with that, most of them cost money.
Money is a funny thing for us writers. Generally our primary focus when it comes to spending money is on professional editing, cover design, and any tools that help us release a book. So making a map of our world and designing further elements that may not be in our initial story is frivolous. It is nice to have a map, but not crucial. But wouldn’t you like one anyways?
Let’s not lose touch on what makes the world beautiful, in our efforts to make it better.
