    I looked up this Forum thread for something that happened to me today xD

    So I was world-building on this whiteboard and I drew this blob as an outline for my country/city, and my brother, joking the blob was meant to be a head, gave it a face and a stick-figure body, and I decided to do further world-building in my notebook and my notebook only ๐Ÿ˜€

    It's g-h, 2-4-6-8 twice, three 9's

    @daeus XD Lol. You may have heard of that book. It’s a fairly popular fantasy… go to a bookstore or a library or Amazon and ask for stuff by Tolkien and it should be in the results…

    Right. XD As long as they get a taste of what your story’s about, and the premise sounds interesting, it’s usually fine if your summary sounds like something off a cereal box…

    @jessi-rae I thought the same thing! JOIN THE FORUMS PLZZZZ!!!!

    And the explaining….*earth-shaking groan*….If I offhandedly mention my book in public, and someone says, “Oh cool! What’s it about?” I have a scripted response to prevent complete rambling.

    “It’s a fantasy book, and it’s got dragons and stuff.”

    No one really asks any questions after that, and if they do, THEN I go into ULTIMATE RAMBLE MODE. And then I stop talking like 15 minutes later and I say, “Did you understand any of that?”

    “Uh….not really. Sorry.”

    @aislinn-mollisong That’s exactly what happens to me if someone asks more questions after I say “oh it has some horses in it. kinda mysterious thing going on.”
