Like I said in my lj entry
, I have signed up for the NaNoWrimo
And boy, my muse is pretty active-- I can't sleep early!!! I am so excited! I'm finally breathing life to a story that I have in my head for years, but never had a chance to see the light of day.
I already have the basic outline (composed of working titles per chapter) and basic character names and points. But I have run into a serious road block.World Building.
Since the genre I am working on is fantasy, I need to "create" the world the story will be in. And since the story revolves on "the journey", world building is key.
I am, however, overwhelmed by this task alone.The task entails physical geology and geography, climates and weathers, socio-economic and religion... there's also the races, the magic (hey, this IS fantasy) and creatures~
And I am left with less than 10 days to do create my own little world.
Thank goodness for 30 Days of World Building
It's a step-by-step guide on what to do so the task won't be so scary as it sounds. However, since I only have less than 10 days, I am speeding up the process. (I have already finished the first 4 steps in 3 hours) I will be starting on doing the map within the day. I am so glad October 24 is a non-working holiday! Whoopee!!!
My muse is high on caffeine (and I have yet to drink any for the past 6 days), and is causing me to think too way ahead of me. So this guide is helping me a lot.
Now, onto the drawing board~
(Oh noez!!! NaNoWriMo has taken my life!)
