Just a quick update on my earlier posts about building/creating a fantasy world and how to create a map of that world.

Today I came across the One of Us creative writing website, which has a fabulous article called ‘How to Create Fantasy Worlds’.  It’s an introductory article but it has links to other resources, including mapping, information on mythical creatures, names and languages.  There’s even a forum on it.

The website also has separate pages on writing tips and a more general discussion forum with various writing sub-categories as well as specific articles.

I think it’s a pretty cool website and aspiring writers should check it out.

I’d like to add that the Cartographer’s Guild (www.cartographersguild.com) is an excellent resource with many tutorials on all aspects of fantasy map making. It’s also one of the friendliest forums on the web with an active community of people who are very good at providing helpful advice.
