Having a small break, well a month actually, from the grim reality of my sefuty world. April is the month of collective madness as a bunch of bloggers, last I heard it huge! enter the A-Z blog challenge.
This year I am going to A-Z'ing about world building each day (except Sundays) over on kissafrog. Not a new world but this one of ours which has enough amazing magical strangeness about it to satisfy any teacher of world building:)
World building fascinates me – such power for the creator. However, there are rules, and for successful world building the rules are clear enough. There must be logical/reasonable geography and history, culture, life forms, myths and legends and, if a fantasy or fairytale, there must be magic both natural and controlled (magic also has rules, did you know?) Higher beings, who control the magic or who know the secrets. A whole lot of other stuff as well, such as leaders,politics, technologies etc.
So on this mad merry go round I will have some of the above – the reason for the geography, some flora and fauna. I will discuss a little sociology and anthropological aspects, not much I don’t want to bore you. There will be some natural magic and some invented, some mention of the special few who control it.
I will be discussing the origins and uses of some of the words on albertaross, and will be back here in May.
I haven't written all the blogs yet just the first week's , if something pertinent to sefutychronicles comes up I will post here as well. I might still have guests on the Red Carpet during April - so not entirely closed. See you soon
