A Writing Journey


Perhaps you remember some of my early posts in which I shared maps of Lacey’s world,  maps that showed the world’s evolution (and in ways the plot’s evolution as well). I’ve been living in that world since I first set eyes on it back in 2010. It’s time I take a break. I don’t anticipate that it will be a long break (as the stories still demand to be told), but I need something to get me excited about writing again.

And how,  you ask,  will I regain my enthusiasm? By creating something new.  I know Lacey’s world inside and out – I need to discover a new place so that I can reinvigorate my creativity.

The following is a map that I sketched today.  I like to start with maps,  because the layout and shape of land give me ideas for the stories that happen there.


I can’t leave things unlabeled,  so for now I’m calling it “New World” (about the most unoriginal thing I could think of!) And I’m going from there.

Do you use maps to begin stories, or let the story shape the map? What is your opinion on maps in books?

Take care.

  1. I haven’t thought about creating maps, but I sometimes look at them pertaining the books I read. I feel that they make the world so much more real. I like your thoughts, your writing. Wonderful!
