G'day, quick introduction, I'm from Norway, soon to be 21 summers old. Not really sure what language I'll be writing in. I'm currently in a planning phase, fantasy is thy genre. As of now I'm playing with a couple ideas, I want to write a bookseries, but to start it all of I've been thinking about writing a short novella just to get the feels of it. Anyways, that is still going to be some time I believe, I'm doing this as a fun hobby at the moment so I'm in no hurry. This is what I'm currently working on: 1# Creating a map(A map of my fantasy world, countries, cities, how long does it take to travel from here to there and all that). I'm creating it in photoshop, which I had to learn two days ago. 2# Character-creation, current plan is to have 3 main characters, so those three are my focus. I will also have to create alot of followers/companions, friends and foes etc. 3# I have to build a functioning and balanced magic-system, playing with some easy ideas. 4# Introducing more races, like giants, trolls, elfs etc, not sure what kind of creatures I'll bring into my world. 5# Plot, not just for the first book, but where do I want to end up in my last book. Thinking some kind of good vs evil, dark vs light, with a long journey to get there. No deadlines as of yet, but I want something more solid by the end of the year. And when all of this is set and done, I want to write a short draft, I've already written some sort of introduction of 186 words, but that was more to test it.
