Here is the map of Cencher – the land of All Things Scary.
I’ve named the countries and have begun to fill in some of the details. The map will become more detailed as I write. I know there is a vapor swamp in Granli – where the witch lives.
I did something a little different with this map. I use a lot – I mean A LOT – of index cards in my writing. Sometimes I punch a hole in the corner and put them on a ring or I make a board to attach them to, etc.
For All Things Scary, I’m going to keep my world building ‘key’ on index cards attached to the map. Like this….
The cards are attached with tape across the top. As you can see I flip them upside down but this is just personal thing. The ‘tricky’ thing about using index cards like this is taping them. The tape has to be run the full length of the card (I use the top line as my guide which is the reason I flip them upside down) and each one taped separately. Once you have figured out your spacing and taped all of the cards into place, you have two options to get them to flip smoothly.
(1) This is what I do. You’ll need to cut the tape on each side of the card so flip up. JUST cut the top of the card not all the way through.
(2) Make a crease in the card where the tape line is.
As always, I welcome all tips/hints or suggestions.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
