Hi Everyone! How’s NaNoWriMo going?
I haven’t got so much of a word count in, but I have been plugging away at 30 days of world building, which I found on this blog here.
Basically you spend each day working on the different aspects of creating your world. So far, I’ve created a climate, created a rough sketch of map, and selected what races will be in my world and how they will interact, etc.
The planning is so detailed and it’s been a lot of fun so far. Some of the stuff I’ve already come up on my own, but before I started doing the exercises I hadn’t even thought as far as climate and how weather (like a bad storm) could help drive a plot point.
Kind of neat! I think tonight I will do my world building exercise, (Economy and Politics!) and get down to some actual writing for once. I tend to not want to sit at my desk, because I sit at one for work all day long, so here I am propped up in bed and it is working so far.
How is everyone doing? How do you keep yourself motivated to keep writing?
Happy Writing Everyone!
