A Combination resource-dump, workshop, and virtual commonplace book all rolled into one.
Are you starting with a name or title and coming up with this material spontaneously? I'm loving this torrents of specialized information...the setting is really coming alive in my head!
It's a bit stranger than that, I guess, as I tend to create the illustration based on inspiration from dreams that come after siting through a ton of old notes and the like. Sometimes I start writing and then do the art for the piece after I get some idea of what I'm dealing with, but usually, whichever way it goes, I tend to let the pieces tell me what to write. I keep out of the way and just facilitate their coming through. I'll wake up with a lot of weird stuff to sort out and things like the Trisectivore come striding into mind full-blown and ready to go...and I don't argue with them.I'm glad that the setting is coming alive for you, as that has been of some concern to me--it is important to achieve a critical mass where it all starts to gel and work together in a thriving synergy of all the disparate parts. Monday will be silent.Then things start to shift into a higher gear. I like being able to schedule the posts now. It's helping to get more stuff done.
