Hello everyone,

I am Yanni an aspiring novelist.

I spend most of my time writing or conlanging, however, I'm really bad at maps. So given that I've never actually done anything other than hand scribble a few horrible attempts I thought I'd sign up here and lurk for a while as I get to know how to map properly.

Once I figure out how to use GIMP, etc. I will hopefully be able to start posting and contributing some. :)

Welcome! I was brought here for the same reasons in that I drew a map and then refere to it often to keep distances in my story accurate for timeline and day/night sequencing. I'm working on individual city maps as well as specific countries bordering my main country for my story. I'm still drawing by hand, scanning then drawing ove rthe top in a separate layer. Good luck.

Yanni & Daemaree, I may need to chat with you two in the near future on conlanging. I am creating an entire fictional world for a video game iwant to make and am just now learning the basics for conlang.
