    Post Writer on board

    Greetings!

    What an amazing site, so glad I stumbled upon it. Many talented artists I have seen already. Just looking at some of the maps is an inspiration to me. I am a writer with very little drawing talent, but hope to improve on this one day.

    Best,

    Val

    Post Welcome!

    Welcome to the Guild!

    What kind of fiction do you write? Anything published?

    Lots to do here, check out the Finished Map Forums as well as the WIP and Monthly Challenge boards - lots to see. If you don't have a specific graphics application to do your own mapping we have a Mapping Software thread in the General Forum. No doubt you'll want to check out the Tutorial Forum as a best place to begin your improvement in your art skills.

    Again, welcome.

    Thanks GP.

    Four novels finished. One published and another that is long overdue--which should be out in Q4 or sometime early next year. I've done some freelance travel writing as well.

    Really glad to hear it. I am getting lost in all the stuff I've seen so far.

    It is easy to get lost here. I have to limit myself to only a few areas of the forum lest I go crazy
    Something witty and pithy

    Welcome; hopefully, if you're looking to make good-looking maps, you'll find the fine folks here can help you learn how.

    So... where should we be looking for your published work?
    I think, therefore I am a nerd.
    Cogito, ergo sum nerdem.

    Check out my blog: "The Undiscovered Author"
    It's the story of a writer... follow me in my simple quest to get published, and share your own writing stories, adventures and writerly tips.

    Pimping my worldmap here. Still WIP... long way to go, but I'm pretty proud of what I've done so far...

    With luck, everywhere.

    A Resonance of Shadows will be available at bookstores, online and libraries once its released. I wrote articles a few years back for Condé Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, Departures, ET and Blue--before our triplets came on board and my wanderlust was quelled (at least for now).

    Ooo Conde Nast, good stuff. Welcome.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
