Q1. WHICH PROJECT ARE YOUR WORLDBUILDING EFFORTS TIED TO?

Books

I'm currently working on plot edits of my first novel, which of course means I've started taking notes for my second. A couple of the prompts last year ended up informing major plot points, so hopefully we'll find some tasty inspiration here too.

Games

I'd like to run a tabletop RPG at some point, but the primary goal is the writing for now (plus, I haven't decided whether I'll be using DnD 5e (curse you, rigid Vancian magic system), Genesys, or something else entirely).

Q2. WHICH WORLD ARE YOU WORKING ON?

This one, of course--Drake's Dozen. I've sketched out some parts, but there's a lot still to go. There are whole continents, species, planes of existence, rules of physics, and eldritch horrors that I haven't even begun to explore.

Q3. WHICH AREA OF THE WORLD(S) ARE YOU WORKING ON?

Map of Neyush cover

Last year's was focussed around the city of Yenagun in eastern Pfemba, which fed nicely into the current book.

This year, we're heading even further east to the deserts, jungles, and mountains of Chezri. It's not a very fleshed-out place at the moment, but I want to tell a story about the tilkens and kliasta and how they've adapted to life after the Great War, so let's change that.

Q4. HOW MUCH ARE YOU AIMING TO COMPLETE?

Diamond or die trying

I managed the full 33 last year--it's what properly introduced me to this amazing community--so we're going all the way this year, too.

Q5. WHEN WILL YOU WRITE?

Despite my efforts to improve, I am not a very organised person.

I will write in between editing my book, in lunch breaks at work, when inspiration strikes me on the toilet, on the increasingly more crowded commute, and sometimes I will even set some time aside to sit down and worldbuild. Fancy that.

Q6. WHO IS YOUR SUPPORT NETWORK?

The fantastic people on the WA Discord, of course.

Good luck with the words! :D

People venture to Ædeos-the world of ideas and concepts to gain knowledge, craft... magic. Not every mind can bear it. Not every mind cares...

Thanks so much! Hopefully I can spend more time writing than CSS-tweaking this year...   Good luck to you, too!

Haha, no need to apologise for liking my stuff twice ;)   Thanks! I'm sure there's more CSS trickery to come, but I'm happy for now at least. How's your summer camp going?
