    Post Greetings Everybody

    Hello there! I've just found this page and it struck me that this may be the place I've been looking for since my first days of writing.

    Yes, I am an amatuer writer and poet. Since four years, I'm working on my "universe-world-mythology-linguistic-etc... setup".

    After I have managed to create the mythology, the history, the theology, the races, the social structures, etc., the lacking of a trustworthy map loaded the dice against me. It is really make things hard, especially when you need the map of a giant continent.

    I'm planning my books to be constituted from 6 volumes. The sketch of the general story is done and I'm writing the first book at the moment. After a few days, I managed to draw a map on CC3, in which the first book takes place. But it looks like its from a fairytale, it's not realistic. I don't like it... neither the colours nor the icons...

    And even worse, this was the map of a single country, which is like a drop in the ocean. I want to make the map of the whole world. But no matter how hard I try, I just can't seem to be able to do it. You see, although I'm somewhat good at writing, when it comes to the drawing, I always fail. It enrages me, because everything is all set up in my mind, but I just can't turn them into something I can actually see.

    Thus, when I find this site, I immediately got an account and became a member. I see that there are many talented artists here, who can help me with my "quest".

    As much as I want to pay for the map and get rid of all this headache, (as I said before) I am just an amateur writer and I don't even know if the book is going to be published. This means I'm broke, pennyless, but burning with enthuisasm and irresistable urge to create! And that's all I need. (...but I wouldn't mind having a few thousand dollars/euros)

    So I've already written too much, but when it comes to the writing I guess I can't stop.

    Greetings again to all.
