Hi all! As you might notice, I’ve changed my comment form recently after it was suggested that the embedded form was the reason why some of my readers couldn’t comment.
But now it seems that the new form isn’t helping, because I’m just getting new people who are saying that they have a problem. So if you have a problem with the new form but not the old form, would you please let me know? And if you had a problem with the old form and not the new form, please let me know too. I’m trying to figure out the lesser of two evils. I’ll love you forever if you mail me. mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT)com.
OK… now admin is done and I get to the real meat of today’s post.
Today as I was preparing to drive around with my family (today is my day off), my muse dangled this little string in front of me. Curious being that I am, I took it and decided to see where it went. And… now I sort of have another major Doorways related project on the to-do list.
Projects, you might ask. Well, I still have to draw more detailed maps of my countries. I still want to draw the important places in my book. I especially still want to write out a significant portion of two languages.
And now… I have to get the history down. Before book two. Doorways is mainly about events being triggered, but for that to be the case, something must have happened before.
I thought that the current situation was started in the previous generation, but now I’m starting to see that it wasn’t.
Except for that, there are some aspects of the culture that could really do with me knowing exactly what caused them.
Fun, but I can see how that will be time consuming.
But fun. I’m actually thinking about starting either in the current situation and working my way back. On the other hand, it might be a lot more natural to just start at a point in the past and working my way to the present.
Of course, the latter method can be a study on its own…
Anyone else discover the need to write out the history of the places and cultures in your books? How did you go about it?
