    So I decided that I wanted to try making a city map for the first time. Rather than start from scratch, I decided to work with one of the cities I'd named in the map I finished earlier this fall. I found pyrandon's tutorial and used that as a guide. I'd started my second draft on where roads would go when I realized that I'd completely forgotten to consider the scale. I'd cut the relevant section of map from the largest version of my other map and had blown it up a couple times, traced the coastline and made a new map from it. So there was a scale already attached. I just forgot about it. Anyway, here is what I had before I realized I needed to start over.

    Anyway, a list of things I have messed up:

    1. Roads that were way too wide.
    2. A city that was about 500 miles wide.
    3. Trying to make a city that's about 20x20 miles, when that is not realistic for the time.
    4. Spending hours trying to massage a scale into something manageable before I realized #3.
