Parts of a City

Over the weekend, I had a non-digital day, turned off all my tech and only used my phone as a cooking timer when I made a very late dinner. I got a LOT of reading done. And I also did some brainstorming.   So, here's a few location ideas I listed for parts and places … Continue reading Parts of a City

City takeover

The other day, I ended up having a scroll through some old blog posts and one caught my eye that I'd completely forgotten about.

Unexpected title generator failure

It's my birthday this week. I turn 29. I've been having a hard time getting the motivation to write recently, I don't know why. I have plenty of time to do it, I just seem to lack the enthusiasm I wish I had. Maybe that's the problem - I'm wishing I was more enthusiastic when … Continue reading Unexpected title generator failure

On Beastkin

Beastkin live in the wild places of the world, finding themselves most at home in the heart of nature, and rarely stray too far from the spirits of their ancestral homes. The greatest penalty for transgression in a Beastkin tribe is exile. Branded as a mark of shame, they can find no home with any … Continue reading On Beastkin

The Rookery

The Rookery is the home of the Circle, a vicious gang of thieves and killers. The various ward marshals of Queenstown would like nothing more than to infiltrate the gang, especially so that they can locate the Rookery. How long it will take them to look above the city streets has become the basis of … Continue reading The Rookery
