Today, it's due to the day being too short; we had only 8 hours of usable time and we're on hour ten of that. (See also, title of blog.)
But, it was at least somewhat productive. We knocked out some of the basic basics behind farn and spent almost all of it on background information. Basically, we know a lot of what happened.
How Lilith became a demon, the way Milodee became a demon, the way Mastemo became a demon, the way a different demon became a demon, the backstory of Bairn, the importance of Bairn, the basic geology of the land Bairn and Gardoni are in, the fall of three archangels, the fighting of two different pantheons of gods, and a lot of information that is important to the story.
But while I can cut a lot of corners, I still need to give at least some idea of timeline.
My current story is basically an anime (a shonen, mostly) in story form--the thing about anime though is that they usually show maps and in order to have a good map, I need to have mapped out the basic layout of every country referenced. The entire continent the setting takes place on is mentioned, a neighboring continent is mentioned, and most (or even all?) of the demons ascending as well as the majority of gods coming into power, came into power in various parts of "the old world".
But there are also gods prominently in power in the continent in countries other than Gardon and Bairn, and they need when they were established at least loosely done as well.
I have a lot of work to do, yet.
I got eight hours' worth done today tho, which gets me close to striking distance of done!
