I am writing a story that is set in a fantasy world, with magic, mythological creatures, etc. I want to make a map of my world, because, it tends to help me write better in terms of the landscapes and surroundings. However, I am not sure how to go about making this map. So here are my questions: 1. Is the one continent world idea overused? 2. In making the continent(s), do I just draw random landmasses until I find one that I like. Or should I draw something more specific? 3. How ecologically diverse does the world need to be so that it is realistic? Any advice will be much appreciated!
