Sep,

I share your pain.

I'm a first year geographer and whenever it seems you have everything where it should be you learn something else that brings your 'world' tumbling down!

I've found it helpful to look at the good 'ol Earth itself and work from the key plate boundaries and general orography that is all around us and then add a little twist...

I think a lot of the worry is from the paranoia that there's an established geographer who will read the book, look at the map, and laugh!

But hey, we're good writers and the geographical inadequacies of the world isn't what the readers should be worrying themselves with! It's the story, the characters, that are key. As long as they're believable... view post
