I really like your world!
Cool! Can you tell us more about them?
Hmm, languages! I used to be a conlanging nerd, though I used a YouTube guide. It was addicting, so I stopped when I realized I spend too much time on it… Maybe I’ll create a ”sketch language” for my setting, but no one is interested in my exotic phonology, rich grammar and creative writing system.
Wow, you really took time to flesh them out! How are they called?
Hmm, they seem very pagan. What’s your story about? How many stories do you have, by the way?
To develop them more, I recommend using SE’s ultimate worldbuilding quiz. You can find it in resources.
I don’t have a WIP currently, but I have a few ideas for a setting… I’m strange, I know.
I want to involve biology in my world! Because, well, biology. The most interesting area of science. For example, I want to have magic that’s involved with genetics (and so, we will have genetically engineered ultra soldiers, mutant monsters, and so many cool things!). I think I’ll combine this magic with the idea I talked about in Beth’s Magic systems.
Another cool idea I have, is monsters, called the <b>Abominations</b> (I have no idea if it works in English as in Hebrew), that eat un-atoned sins, and bring famine, diseases and so on by the way. It’s pretty preachy, so I’m not sure I’ll include it, but it’s an interesting idea to play with.
I also have an idea of a culture called The Dwellers of the Sands by themselves, and Sandwellers by their neighbors (I guess it sounds almost the same thing in English. In Hebrew, the second title sound much more belittled). They are nomads that live in the desert. I have to develop them more, because I want them to be distinct from generic desert nomads, like the Bedouins and the Tuareg. I’ll flesh them out and come back 😉
Your idea sounds really cool! Biology has been my favorite subject in school this year.
In my world (it’s really an undiscovered island on earth) there is a very smart /not/ mad scientist. He has an army from a South or Central American country, and he uses it to keep the many indigenous tribes on the island in check.
He is messing with the genes of generally microscopic creatures. It’s not possible to the degree I’m using (that’s why it’s fantasy). I have giant viruses, amoeba, volvox, paramecium, euglena, and hydra. It’s a work in progress.
I’ve finished the entire first draft of five books. And the complete outlines of three more. Ideas come to me faster than I can write them down. (:
Mom’s calling! I have to go
Biology is my favorite subject too!
Hmm, one-celled creatures are fascinating, but aren’t they somewhat disgusting when too big? 😉
Ffffivvve bbbookssss? Wow. Writing is definitely your calling!
Yes, disgusting many are. (: But, they also are fascinating…and quite dangerous. Especially the hydra and viruses I use.
I do want to write books to offset expenses in the future. I love to write! Sooo much. (: But I really want to be a wife and mother mainly. Writing will have to come second after that happens.
How many kids do you want?
I don’t know what they’re called yet?
I really like your ideas! Can’t wait to hear what you decide on. (:
I want… 3-4 kids, but only God really chooses.
