As I am deep into Red Reign, I keep forgetting the most crucial thing in that the story has.
MAGICAL POWERS CALL MISTING!!!
I SEEM TO ALWAYS forget that people are capable of wielding misting depending on how high or how low the First Mist is in their location.
It’s like the moment I am writing, the more important worldbuilding stuff just get tossed out the window, and like “I needed to add that, WHY THE HELL DIDN’T I ADD THAT?”
I start thinking about it after it is done. Like in the moment, I am just writing and enjoying the ride, then when I realized what I’ve done…I’m like “WHAT THE EVER LOVING HELL, WHY DIDN’T I MENTIONED THAT?!”
I have an idea of the worldbuilding and it’s magical powers, but it does have a tendency to change often.
I just irks me that I get so forgetful on the most important things.
Then I have to start either all over again or toss it into the story as a last minute effort.
I understand that NOT A SINGLE PERSON is going to read this, but I just want to be entertained and make sense of what the fuck I am doing for myself.
That doesn’t even make sense!
What are your thoughts and feelings?!
As a sort of anecdote, in an Elgana story, I had this amazing, grand scene with these metal statues in a desert land, eroded and abandoned after centuries. I called them Mountain Maidens and made this big show of MC Pinti going up to one and finding it curious.
Then I forgot about it and never mentioned it again
