Forgot to publish!!
I worked on this from about 10AM to 2PM straight on a Tuesday, no breaks, back hunched over desk and soundtrack music playing on my laptop, referring to my old story drafts and a crude map I drew in high school. The flags are for areas still foggy in my mind. I definitely had to do some translation for a few new place names and checking of basic geography (can rainforests be coastal? Do deserts always have to be formed by rain shadow?) but I then decided it’s a fantasy story and it’s ok to have a plain next to an desert. I mean, there’s a floating island…
It’s incomplete but for some reason I am so proud of this thing! Definitely have to give credit to Tolkien and Paolini (even though I’m not a fan of the latter), who are famous writers/artists/fantasy-land-mapmakers! Doing this definitely got me pumped about getting back to my story…and it was also strangely relaxing.
I am fully aware that this probably qualifies me as one of the weirdest people some people have ever met
