I figure before I continue the mapping I need to be able to sit down with pencil and paper and do some planning.
Right now, I’m working on how the tectonic plates mesh together. This could potentially be done on the computer screen, but I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s also a good idea to use paper in the later stage when we are marking up ocean currents and atmospheric circulation as described in Geoff’s Climate Cookbook. So I made a somewhat prettified map based on a land/water mask I made in Wilbur.
I’ll sketch in some broad plate boundaries on the printed copies. From that information I can figure out where to put mountain ranges, volcanoes, mid-oceanic ridges and maybe add a few island chains. Mustn’t forget to add a few hot spots. What would my world be without the occasional Hawai’i or Yellowstone?
Hopefully, I’ve put up enough content to cause enough interest to keep people glancing over once in awhile to see what’s up. Hopefully, my writing skills will improve with practice. I’ll work on building a queue of daily posts, and maybe sometimes I’ll put up additional posts, when topical events or inspiration demands. And of course, I’ll try to answer comments quickly.
Thank you for your attention. See you tomorrow.
