Fantasy Maps

Hello Writers and Readers!

I have been looking into making a map for my novel, but there isn't a lot of information out there on it. I did find a cool website that I use a lot, for names. On the site, there was a create a map! 

I finished making the map three days later, but it a little bit hard to find the right pieces to use to make the shape I wanted. Anyways, I wanted to talk a little bit about map making.

Start off by drawing what you want, think about how much land your story has. Like it my map, I wanted to have five kingdoms and an island, but I need to plan out how my main character had gone to each kingdom. My first mistake is, I wrote the story first and didn't have an idea how the world/land looked like. Which is why it took me three days to make it.

So my advice for you is, draw out a map for your story (if you are making one or plan on having one).  Of courses, you need your plot, the idea on where you want to go with your story before you draw out a map. You have to know the world and it's land before you draw it out.

So here are the steps I would take:

1-Plot and subplot

2-Characters

3-Race

4-History

5-Land/World

6-Map

There it is, my list. If there is anything you want to know, just ask. I would should you the map I made, but it's hard to save (it's the only problem I have with the site.)
