I am going to try and build a fantasy world and when I think I've built it sufficiently for some stories to live in it, I will try to write some publish-worthy stories about/in it.
I found a world-builder which I think I will use at least to some extent, if you're interested in seeing what I've got ahead of me, click here.
Vosmerre I think will be it's name, but I'm not completely sure yet (I probably won't be until a book about it has been published so that I can't change it any more).
It will be the Medieval-type fantasy with dwarves, fauns, centaurs, people, dragons and other creatures in it. I have been praying that God will guide and help me as I try to put this together in a way that will please and glorify Him.
I think it will have some significant influences from C.S. Lewis and Tolkien, but I also intend to make things very different in my series from any other fantasy.
I intend to blog as I go through this, so expect to hear a lot more about Vosmerre (or whatever it becomes!). If any of you reading this have suggestions that you think will be helpful please let me know; also please pray for guidance and wisdom for me as I embark on this adventure.
