Real and Fictional Geography

I think it’s about time I get started on this. I’m going to be showing you both real and fictional geography at the same time. What does that mean?

First of all, I’ll be working on Geography Quick Facts, going through each country in the world alphabetically, providing you with various facts and figures about each country. I won’t be going into depth about culture, the people, or history of the countries, but I’ll be focusing more on statistics, such as population, largest cities, and tallest mountains, as well as physical characteristics, such as bordering countries, climate zones, and geological zones. I will provide pictures whenever possible.

As for fictional geography, I’m going to do something similar for Ariadne. But these will be the start of the country profiles for the Ariadne Encyclopedia. As I haven’t published anything yet, I’ll only focus on the physical geography of the countries. You can see the names of them, but you won’t get to learn about the cultures, history, or any demographics. Only physical geography, including climate, geology, and ecology. These profiles will grow over time, as I write the books, and I can flesh out the countries, including minor spoilers (these will be marked as spoilers, so you can skip over them).

So, which one are you interested in seeing?

  1. Both! I’m hilariously terrible at creating fictional world’s as far as landscape, culture, history and geography go. I’ve tried just about everything I can with my one really sci-fi book, and it’s driven me insane. It all just kinda seems random and thrown together. Which is pretty much is.

    So I will look forward to the real geography because it helps me to model something for my own stories and the fictional geography because it helps me to see how others do it. :]
