I’m in a bit of a pickle. I’m working on the outline and draft, and I can’t seem to visualize the world I’m building. How can I hope to make this world come alive for readers when I can’t visualize it either?
Yes, I’ve made some changes. The world will now be a little darker, more foreboding and dreadful, than I initially planned. I also understand that I will need to balance those darker elements with breathtaking beauty, and I intend to. But there’s more to it than that. In matters of geography I’m having trouble visualizing spatial relationships and that’s really hampering my ability to work out the plotlines.
Might CC3 help? I think it would. CC3 is a program called Campaign Cartographer 3 and it literally designs worlds. I want it. I probably need it. But the package I would need is almost $400.
Head, meet wall.
