Hello blog, my long-lost friend. I haven’t posted here in a while. Though I’ve continued to post a monthly essay over at WU. I hope some of you have been reading over there.
Maps have been on my mind lately. It’s been brought to my attention that none of my old maps are broad enough to encompass the area of my entire story. So last Saturday I dove in, and spent more time than I care to admit on a fantasy mapmaking website called Inkarnate, making the map you see here. It’s not complete, and it’s far from perfect, but since I have pretty much zero visual arts aptitude, I’m fairly pleased with it.
The experience made me realize how much I love maps, and how much they have to do with my writing journey, so I wrote about it for my Writer Unboxed contribution this month. I hope you’ll stop by and read, and maybe even let me know how you feel about maps, book maps, and mapmaking.
Thanks for reading and for your support. Wishing all of my American friends a blessed Thanksgiving!
