Yesterday I came home and drew a map for the next part I planned to write. Took me better part of the night to draw it. I could have just drawn a rough sketch and left the map for later, but drawing maps is something I can do as I watch something. Because of drawing the map I didn't get any writing done. While I'm very glad I got done what I got done over this past week, but by yesterday I was spent. I'm probably just a lightweight, but I made a decision to not do NaNo.
Drawing maps, layout and editing don't count toward word count. While I plan on putting more effort into getting my writing done, producing more content for Manor, adventure and my campaign I don't, won't be beholden to a word count. Like yesterday, I missed the day writing and then spent most of the morning today beating myself up over it. Dumb. Waste of a perfectly good Saturday.
Now I'll continue to plow away at campaign and have fun with it instead of feeling an obligation that made it no fun. Just to show you I wasn't blowing smoke/sunshine or whiskey up your ass here is the map I worked on.
There are a series of ruins located near where the party will start. This is the first. I can't go into too much detail because my guys are probably reading this. I like how this one turned out. Tonight I'll write the numbered areas...and not count how many I did, but set the goal to complete them.
