October Update - Theme & Events
CSS Theme, Symbol, Upcoming Events
It’s super inspiring to be a part of as the entire community is aflame with creativity and worldbuilding passion!October has been a month filled with productivity for me! While many were still recovering from the Kyanite Anthology Challenge, I was writing articles such as the Peasants' Republic of Aussel. To be fair to everyone, they were probably tired since all of their stories were actually good, unlike the half-baked one that I need to flesh out now that the challenge is over. Since a lot has changed (as you may notice by just looking at the article) and National Novel Writing Month will be starting next month followed right after by WorldEmber in December, I decided to write this update filling you in on the plans and what has gone down so far.
October AchievementsThe Cold Case challenge started in October, and I got my article, Hesi Blues, out surprisingly quickly. It's in the sidebar with a handful of other articles that I wrote this month. After finishing it, I fleshed out my other world, Golden Awakening, a bit more. The articles that I worked on were connected to the murder mystery article itself.
New CSS Theme and SymbolThe old theme that Lethea had was built upon the Zen theme, and it didn't allow for many colours. Every time I had tried adding a coloured container, it looked out of place and that somewhat demotivated me to work on the world. To fix that problem, I created a new one from scratch! This new theme was slapped together in around a day, and I'm still tweaking it so not everything might be permanent. After helping out with its CSS and looking at Ninne's new world, Dark-Fall , I felt as if I needed a good symbol that could represent the entire world. It could be useful in marketing once I figure all of that out.
The Hesi Blues is what the people of Upēsis call the murder of Kt. Ulums, a soldier who had been the sole survivor of a dangerous expedition.
