Wrimo @ Work
Today I would like to talk about making maps.
And that’s about all I can say about it. I got the idea from the planning event that was hosted by the mad people @Wrimoverse. So One evening when the kids went to bed, my boyfriend was looking at his series and the dog was snoring in the sofa, I got to work.
It took me two attempts to get completely bonkers. I guess I have no idea what I’m doing. And I’m annoyed by the lack of an undo button. But,… I got something done and it helped me to get names and places made into a vivid picture.
If however you think that my world will no longer change, you are wrong. I am indeed a planner, but my characters still have a mind of their own and sometimes things just,…. change? I know the story is still growing like a little baby. Oh, no, I’m pregnant again! Yes with a lovely and mind blowing story. (Pfff)
So why did I redo it? Well I was thinking about clothing, googling away, while suddenly I thought : not every place has the same weather, so you’d need different kind of clothes. Duh, you’d say, but it just came to mind after freakishly many hours of preparation. I only now, thought it might be of importance. So I went back to the drawing board for a full blown, ever growing map!
Think I’m being an idiot? Too silly, bonkers,… Yup you’d probably be right. But I’m a Wrimo, so what did you expect?
I really wanted to ask all of you if you make maps, and how are you at building it?
Happy writing (prepping)
