I'm Jacob, an aspiring (graphic) novelist. I'm here to learn a few tips and tricks so that I can create a map of my world, mainly for reference to begin with. I've only just begun writing this year, so once I get more of my story worked out, I'll want some more detailed and polished maps to go into the book.
Good morning! I say don't wait, go ahead a draw a pen or pencil outline of your story country(s). I find that I refer to my maps several times as I write to get distances correct for traveling and day and night sequences. Good luck with both your story line and the maps!
Hi there Jacob, I agree with Rodan, having a map for reference really helps to get those creative juices a'flowin. Welcome to the Guild.
