St. Ives Medieval Faire

September 23, 2018

I’ve attended this Australian Medieval Faire in St. Ives, New South Wales a few times before, but this was my first time to run my own booth at one. It’s quite a different experience running a booth at one of these than walking around as the general public, which up to this point is how I experienced them. To those…

NaNoWriMo 2017 Winner

November 29, 2017

Last night with 50384 words, I crossed the 2017 NaNoWriMo Winners line by going over the 50k word count. However, “Gorp 2: Dungeon Overlord” is proving to be a much longer novel than the first one “Gorp: Goblin Janitor“. In this continuation of the series, we see a lot more of The Kingdom as it is called, from Hallstorm in…

I’ve added more to my over world map and detailed the continent mostly populated by humans as that is where most of my beginning stories will start. As for the book itself, the writing has been very slow,…

In continuation of my new Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) book series, this week I’ve tackled the job of world-building and map-making. Agrobathe, is a fantasy world I’ve been working on for a few years now.
