Continuity (Mini) Journal Post #5

Hey! I wanted to take a minute to talk about…well, all the things that I’ve talked about up until now. A lot of it has been about the specifics of my world building process, and the magic system; but the thing is, I’m kind of working on all of this constantly. Even once I actually start posting the serial, it’s likely that things will continue to develop and evolve as I write (and hopefully get better at writing).

That said, I do understand the need for canon and consistency. Reading a story where things can just change at the whim of the author would be obnoxious. So, on the chance that someday there might be folks reading who care about this sort of thing, here’s a little ranking for things that I say:

  1. Twitter: If I say something on my twitter account it’s probably just a thought passing through my head, it could change as soon as I hit “send tweet.”
  2. Journal Posts: Things that I put in my journals here have been thought through for at least a few months, if not more than a year. That said, as I continue to polish and improve my world building they could change. Usually, this will probably just be small details, or proper nouns.
  3. Prose: If something happens within a prose piece that’s posted here as part of the serial, I will not change it.
    • If something really needs to change for the betterment of the story entirely, I may still do that; but I’ll definitely make a journal post explaining it, and I won’t change anything mid story arc.
    • Sometimes, I might post in setting myths, legends, or folk tales. This will generally be written from the perspective of a culture in universe, and so might not be totally accurate. I don’t really consider that to be a continuity break.

Here’s this for posterity. At the end of the day, this entire project is just for fun, and I hope that whoever you are, whenever you are, you’re enjoying it!

Look forward to the start of the Serial properly in July 2021!

Until then you can find me here sporadically, and also on my twitter @ realm_wright where I post mostly random things to do with League of Legends, Magic: the Gathering, D&D, Drawfee, and other assorted nerdery.
