In my first three posts in this series, I discussed the general aspects of my world-building, such as the language and the mythology. Then, I delved a little bit deeper into the geography and peoples of the northern half of Úr’Dan, providing some insight into the the people and landscapes seen in The Warden of Everfeld: Memento.
Now, I think it’s time we visit the southern half of Úr’Dan. Continue reading Exploring Úr’Dan: The Southern Half

In honor of the premier of Planet Earth II back in March, I wrote a post about the northern region of my fantasy world, Úr’Dan. In that post, I wrote about the Hundred Teeth mountain range and the Uplands that make up the northern portion of this subcontinent.
Planet Earth II was fantastic, by the way. If you have not watched it, you’re missing out on some beautiful cinematography and amazing animals.
Anyway, I thought I would continue my “Exploring Úr’Dan” series by discussing the people who actually live in the Uplands, collectively known as Uplanders. Continue reading Exploring Úr’Dan: Feldings and Uplanders

Sigh… to be a traveler for the rest of my life. That’s my dream, I think.
Alas, perhaps when I am rich and famous I can live a life of exploration and adventure. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Back to Work!
Well, today is the last day of March, which means tonight is my final chance to churn out a solid word count. This week was slow, but overall, March has been great for progressing through Manuscript: Beta. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Writing Crunch Month is Nearly Over!
WVU’s men’s basketball team lost in the Sweet 16 last night to #1 Gonzaga. Despite being out-sized by Gonzaga’s inside players, WVU forced 13 turnovers and was tied with the Bulldogs 11 times throughout the game. It was neck and neck. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Feeling the Crunch
Revising The Warden of Everfeld: Memento has changed the way I think about stories.
