It's Monday, Time to Get Back to Work!

There's a new post on my pregnancy blog here.

I took the weekend off from my routine, and enjoyed the lake, which was lovely. But now it's Monday, and I'm committed to getting these revisions done, if not completely today, by Wednesday. After that, I'm not sure what I'll work on. I'll be sending the revised ms of Fire to Mary Baader Kaley in the hopes that she'll beta it. And anyone else who's interested, really. Please let me know in the comments if you'd like to beta. But for my writing time every day, I haven't decided whether to focus on Veronica book 3, or work on universe building for this other idea. I'll probably start with that, actually, and see if it goes anywhere.

Have you ever done any universe/world building? Do you have any tricks or techniques you really like? One fellow writer, Will, once referred to a program he uses that draws maps... I'll have to see if I can dig that up. Although I see this story as involving planets and space travel rather than being tied to one world, so I think a world map may offer more detail than I need. I wonder if there are universe map building programs out there?


  1. I've started a Critique Partner want ads page on my blog. :)

  2. I take weeks to figure out the ins and outs of my world before writing. I LOVE the whole process. Anwyay, here's a link to a world building sheet I sometimes use. Not mine, but I hope it helps.

  3. Thanks for the link, East Coaster! I'm going to check it out this morning. :)
