Join me in some worldbuilding!

I have a new project in mind, but I decided that instead of keeping it so under wraps as I normally do, I would sort of share my design/worldbuilding process with you fine people! Without going into too much detail (yet!) it is a fantasy world, but for the purposes of the stories that will be set in it, we will only focus on one continent.

So how is this going to work? Simple. I will be coming up with framework ideas, the sort of core ideas that the rest of the thoughts will spring out of. Some of these will be essential to future plot lines, but others will just be things I have been sitting on that I have wanted to include in a story for some time. I will post these ideas on here, and my facebook (facebook.com/talesbybob) for you fine folks to peruse. Then if this strokes your creative juices, and you have an idea, go on my facebook and comment! If I like your idea, I will credit you on my website, and give you an acknowledgment in whatever book comes out of this!

So what do you think? Interested?

My Tumblr is a year old now!

Crazy how time flies!

And also how I have basically no followers on there, as I never remember to actually use it.

Could be a lesson there.

Maybe.

Website Happenings

If you havent gone to my website, talesbybob.com, in some time, perhaps you should! There are some cool new pages on there for you to check out.

First, I have begun hosting my sporadically written fantasy humor series about the dimwitted dark wizard Reginald the Foul. Go read the nine short episodes if you like.

Next I have put up sections about my various worlds that feature in my writings. I even put up a description of my mythos for my horror stories.

Lastly I have added a thank you page, for those who have helped me out along the way. If you go nowhere else, please at least go check that out.
