Now Playing Tracks

3 years, 3 stages of life. Dating, engaged, and married. All 3 at the #alligatorfestival. I’m so happy to see how far God has taken us from where we were. Healthier n happier than where we were 3 years ago. It’s so much better to allow Him to be in control n guide us. He’s provided us with do much. Enjoying our first year of marriage #8months. I can’t imagine my life without my beautiful bride. I love u @stephrheams.

No writing is wasted. Did you know that sourdough from San Francisco is leavened partly by a bacteria called lactobacillus sanfrancisensis? It is native to the soil there, and does not do well elsewhere. But any kitchen can become an ecosystem. If you bake a lot, your kitchen will become a happy home to wild yeasts, and all your bread will taste better. Even a failed loaf is not wasted. Likewise, cheese makers wash the dairy floor with whey. Tomato gardeners compost with rotten tomatoes. No writing is wasted: the words you can’t put in your book can wash the floor, live in the soil, lurk around in the air. They will make the next words better.

Hi! I was wondering if you have any resources/advice for creating medieval names which are unique to different fantasy regions? For example, I want my names from country/culture A to sound different to names from country/culture B

Names

Naming Systems

Writer SOS Naming is Hard

There are a couple of things you can do:

  • Create different naming systems. In the Naming Systems link, you’ll find a guide to creating a naming system. If these cultures have different naming systems, you’ll be able to set them apart. Through naming systems and customs, one culture might have four names (each with two syllables) and one might have two names, both of which tend to be long. That’s enough to make them sound different.
  • Use different prefixes/suffixes and roots. In the Names link, you’ll see that I created several different names using similar roots, prefixes, and suffixes. They all look like they belong to the same culture or language because of this.
  • Use different spelling and phonology. Different languages have different sounds and different spellings to convey those sounds. If one culture does not use “k”, “q”, or “i” but another one does, we might have names such as “Caty” and “Qati” (both pronounced as “kah-tee”). They’re pronounced the same, but look quite different.

I’ll give a more in depth example below:

It’s the end of an era. 5-1/2 years of work here at Marathon. I’ve learned valuable lessons and gained a lot of skills. My life has changed in immeasurable ways since working here. Now I’m moving on to bigger n better things. I’ll cherish the good memories and keep the lessons I learned from the bad. Good luck Rollo. Keep it in the pipes, Marathon! #plugthecheese

Sorry for how late this. I procrastinated really badly *shameful face*

This post is for just-tonie and theaccidentwill who both requested it. They should be more how to annotate posts on their way. 

If you have any requests for posts or questions leave them in my ask! 

This is pretty much what I do with my post-its, except I’ll vary my themes more and keep a color key on the inside cover. Good tips for the beginning of the fall semester!!
