My name is Fiona. I've been popping in and out of the website without registering for some time. I'm a writer, and one of my favorite tasks is world building. Where I fall short is when it comes time to bring that world into being. I've tried the various programs and found them all to be well beyond my comprehension. So I thought maybe asking for advice, rather than getting lost in a tutorial, might be a good idea.

I'm not an artist by any stretch. Most of my maps are done by hand, in pencil. In fact one is sitting right next to me, blank continents waiting to be filled in with rivers, lakes, and mountains.

And I've wandered off the point of the thread, which was to say hello. So, hello!
