As I Ponder, Nearly Napping...

Yesterday was just plain nuts at Starbucks; it was cold, so the drive-through was a stready stream of people ... half of whom ordered frappuccino.

Um, folks, here's a clue ... frappuccino is made mostly of ICE! Go fig.

Whatever that mysterious idea was yesterday morning, it seems to have gone back down to lower depths again to develop some more for the time being. Just as well, if it was a cool idea, I'd just be frustrated by my lack of time to work on it. Maybe it will bubble up again when I get a chance to work on Ethangea some. Collapse )

Speaking of Ethangea...

This world-building stuff is hard work. It's a big task, and I'm not sure if I'm going about it the right way. Should I keep going with this "big picture" approach, or should I narrow in on a small region? I have a bunch of city, town, and place names ... should I just scatter them liberally around the map and start sketching things in around them? Collapse )
