Three days late for the beginning of NaNoWriMo 2016, here’s a bonus episode about maps. Because nothing says “keep writing” like “hey, let’s draw a map now!”
Dan and Howard were joined by Maurice Broaddus, Mur Lafferty, and James L. Sutter, who wanted to talk about maps. As Napoleon Bonaparte is rumored to have said prior to invading Russia, “geography is destiny.” We talk port dwarves, rolling glaciers, star systems, and more.
- Logarithmic star map
- Tolkien’s map of Middle Earth
- Center-Pivot Irrigation (75 years old, not 50 as Howard said)
Take one big idea from each of two of your favorite books, and mash them up for something new.
