This is my last Development Diary of 2015 and I’d like to take a moment to review my progress so far. I planned to be where I am, but a lot of where I am is an unplanned, but a pleasant surprise.
When I started building the SOPC world, I decided to create a place that wasn’t so strange that the learning curve would require a glossary as prerequisite study, but also different enough that there was always something new to discover around every turn of the page. Today’s Development Diary is about one such discovery. Its origins began as a means to improve a story, but end as a new piece of SOPC lore.
Today’s Development Diary directly correlates my short story First Blood. It’s the first story I’ve released in the Seed of Prophecy Continuum world.
Worldbuilding is a curious process. Sometimes while writing your story, you’ll find that you need to create all new elements in order to make the world feel tangible. Today, I’d like to share one of these instances.
