I mentioned, in ‘Part 1: Cyclic Calendar’, that I’ve been considering writing a fantasy series. It’s a very long way off. I have some fragmented world ideas, a few story outcomes, and ideas to ponder several modern issues in a fantasy world. Nothing concrete yet. Truth is, I may never build an entire world or write a novel. It’s an ambition. A dream, somewhat ethereal, yet corporeal, floating on the edge of ghostly tendrils. It’s at a distance, but just about in view: a possibility.
Many, maybe yourself, are in a similar position. From my experience, the reading and writing community is wonderful and supportive. I created this blog to contribute to that culture. When I began creating building blocks for my world, I thought it would be beneficial to blog the process—thoughts, rationale, calculations, links to the real-world etc.—for myself, but mainly because it may help others. There are aspects of worldbuilding I’m unlikely to blog about, at least not in full, as they could lead to spoilers, if I were to write a novel. Though, I would write these retrospectively. That said, I may never add more to this page than what is already here. I have no idea how far this journey will take me, but, I hope, what is already here may already benefit others.
