When I was a WL (wee lad) I reveled in the making of fantasy maps. I would make them just for the sake of making them. I would color them in with colored pencils (I only discovered the joy of crayons after I got over myself and became an adult) and would carefully delineate the continental outlines with respect to the plate tectonics ruling the shape of the world I was drawing. Do you make maps? Do you make them for your stories? Do they help you? Why?
