All right, Day 15! Halfway there! Bring it on!

Okay, so today's challenge is....

....linkspam a list of worldbuilding resources.

Seriously? รต.O

*sighs* All right, all right, I'll give them a look. But this is either going to be incredibly boring or lead to me spending the rest of the night looking at shinies instead of accomplishing anything (and I'm not sure which I'd prefer...).

~I have used Patricia Wrede's questionnaire before, and found it useful as a prompt to consider things I hadn't thought of before, though I rarely do the whole thing for any one story.

~I actually used to own The Writer's Complete Fantasy Reference, but I was not to impressed with it in the long run. A lot of the magical information was stuff I already knew from my many years as a fantasy reader, and while the cultural info was interesting, the whole book was basically geared towards a traditional high fantasy novel. Mutelight is probably the closest I've ever gotten to high fantasy except for that story I started when I was twelve, and I've never really been one for "traditional".

Okay, now looking at the stuff I haven't seen before:

~The Borderlands of Science: Where Sense Meets Nonsense by Michael Shermer sounds intriguing. I shall have to see if I run into it.
~aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand 90% of the links don't work. *headdesk* The only one that does work AND is remotely interesting is Stephen Baxter's hard sci-fi article, which is only tangentially relevant at best.

Screw this, I'm gonna go do some prompts. Hopefully there'll be a better challenge tomorrow.
