I believe it's easier to understand some words in China then here! 😂

The scribbled notes you see here are just fragments from a ridiculous undertaking that I've embarked upon for a series of stories that I have been writing for 13 years. I realized upon revisiting my writings (even from three years ago) that there were gigantic holes in my work that made it read like nothing more than a Lord of the Rings or Skyrim fan-fiction. This was due in part to names and phrases that were nonsensically pulled together from Latin / Sanskrit / Greek / Germanic roots but that, while interesting, were a mess, and an amateur-at-best attempt at throwing together "fantasy-sounding-names." A lot of writers do this. And the result can be awful. Great writers like Tolkien managed to put in the work to actually create their own languages to anchor their characters, places, and things in a mythology that as a result, felt real. When you read Tolkien, you believe in his world, because everything is well anchored in archetypes that have been constructed from the ground up, as any history would be. So, it dawned on me that if I ever wanted to complete my stories and not have them read like a Game Of Thrones fanfic, I needed to actually create a language for my world, and not just throw together names that sounded "fantasy-ee." I have a spreadsheet where I have begun to build sounds / prefixes / suffixes, and once I have a basic lexicon completed, I'm going to use the programming language Python to automate thousands of phrases from the root words that I will have built, and save myself hundreds of hours. Then, I will design glyphs in a couple of variations for each phrase. It's too soon to say, as I've just now scratching the surface of this endeavor, but if I am successful in this task I intend to publish the work as open-source for writers to use freely. To my knowledge, there are few if any open-source fantasy languages that are complete. If I fail to complete this, at least I will publish the notes and videos of this crazy experiment, to clue would-be fictional world builders in on how this process works. All the while, I can't help but feel that this project, while a lot of fun, is a giant distraction from the actual work of writing the story.

This is what happens when you are leaving your phone unattended around a 3 year old nowadays🙈😂😂😂#toofunny#ichbinich#selfesteem#toosmart#fantasylanguage#bornentertainer#lovemykids#talented#superhero#iamme#hamburg#germany#mommysprideandjoy#selfievideo

Today I'm back to #languagebuilding because part three is making me crazy. #facepalm ... if you've seen some of my posted #language I need some name inspiration. Anyone want their name written? It'll make me feel creative without actually working on content.... #halp 😅✍️ #procrastination #fantasylanguage #fantasyauthor #worldbuilding

I just watched Arrival this weekend and it got me thinking about how language shapes thought. I just had an awesome revelation on how certain Ielirian vowel shapes affect the meaning of a word. More to come soon!

Almost at 30,000 words! And I'm probably about 1/3 of the way through the book. Always hard to tell where the story will take me!

Took a break from re-writing part one's opening to mess around in #tsallandraçan ❤️ first is Pherenzerbar, then I messed around with a foreigner's name, Sioshan. I wanted to see a Mîralän name in a signature block. 😊 #sharpies #sketchbook #fantasylanguage #fantasyworld #amcreating #backtowriting

Working on my word wheels to be used as scene breaks internally in chapters and wanted to share - then I realized I may be giving something away! So I fixed it 😅 #nospoilers #eraser #fixedit #soclose . .

I was tagged by @racheliswriting ages ago (my bad) for #10thingsiwouldneversay so here we go ... let's see if this format works
.
1️⃣ No thanks, I don't need anymore plants
2️⃣ I hate spreadsheets
3️⃣ Korean BBQ is overrated
4️⃣ I'd rather not travel
5️⃣ Talking about books is boring
6️⃣ I would rather be hot than cold
7️⃣ I love FaceBook
8️⃣ I love crowds
9️⃣ Nah, no wine for me tonight
🔟 No, we don't need to see the dessert menu

Working on Draçan concepts of death during my #lunchbreak ... these will have a great impact on the story so I can't share anymore #nospoilers #notes #handwritten #fantasyworld #worldbuilding #languagebuilding #fantasyauthor

#wow I just unearthed these #flashcards I made for myself for the Mîralän language YEARS ago. I don't know if you can tell but the white cards are becoming yellowed. I don't know if I will keep the level of complication I built in when I first started it but we'll see... #languagebuilding #fantasylanguage #fantasyauthor #language #amcreating

So I hate bare walls and I love #languages - what better than my own language on the wall? #languagebuilding #worldbuilding #philodendron #pothos #penandink #amcreating #yay #fantasyauthor

Reading through my draft manuscript makes me realize 2 things. .
1. The first chapter is super boring and I have a much better idea.
.
2. There are three cultures for the main characters. Two are quite similar, the Mîral and the Kral'ash. This is acceptable because they have some contiguous territory and a lot of shared history during the nomadic awakenings. However, the third culture, Tsallandraçan, is vastly different. But when I read the chapters from that character's POV, that doesn't come through. Like at all. So now I am developing a strong cultural voice! Tsallandraçan voice!
.
.
So now I am knee deep in transitive verbs and accusative and partitive cases... Now where is my Finnish dictionary?! #dictionary #notes #amediting #worldbuilding #languagebuilding #lovelanguages #fantasylanguage #fantasynovel #fantasyauthor

You. Guys. Did I just write the end of my novel? #omg #freakingout #what #holycrap .
.
.
It sure felt like the end. I may be pacing around my apartment. I need to get away from it and look at it tomorrow 😶😱 #putitdownandwalkaway .
.
.
For now, channeling restless energy into figuring out Ecanarian. #ohboy #languagebuilding #worldbuilding #fantasynovel #mynovel #amwritingfantasy

@2ojosazules here is "Halee" in Tsallandraçan print and signature block. Your name written out would be automatically flagged as foreign because none of the letters can be compressed into multi-letter symbols.
.
.
.
The #signature block would be less alarming to them, even though it looks to us silly earth humans like there's a face in it 😕... 😂😂 #hilarious .
.
.
The last is Ecanarian, Tsallandraçan's brother #language ...I've modeled it quite clearly off of Arabic script and I've only started conceptualizing it today. #newlanguage #fantasyworld #languagebuilding #worldbuilding #fantasylanguage #fantasyauthor #amwritingfantasy
