TJ's Mind-Mapvember 2022

Current progress: 7/30
  For Mapvember this year I didn't feel like cartography, so I decided to do some worldbuilding in the form of mind maps based on each prompt! I plan to explore these concepts further during WorldEmber starting December 1st.   (Click on the images below to view them at a larger size.)

Planning Ahead for WorldEmber
I made a planning tool in Google Sheets to help me sort out my jumbled ideas, give them priorities and also help me decide what to do next! So far I've added in my list of existing stubs and set a priority level for each of them so that I know what's the most important for me to create during WorldEmber this year.   I figured other folks here might find it useful too, so I made it available as a FREE (or pay what you want) resource that anyone can use!

Stuck for ideas ready for WorldEmber? Check out my list of 400 worldbuilding prompts (suitable for any genre)! It's free (or pay what you want), just name your price and grab your copy!   The prompts are all organised by World Anvil template, and I'll be using these to inspire my own worldbuilding when I get stuck about three days into WorldEmber xD  


 
WorldEmber is Coming...
When Spooktober ends, the month of preparations for WorldEmber begins!   Every December I take part in World Anvil's annual challenge to write 10k+ words of fresh worldbuilding in my world :D   Here's how I'm preparing this year:

I am very inspired by this!   I'm nowhere near confident enough in my mapping to make so many maps in a single month, but this idea of mind-mapping for the prompts is genius!
