Well, I started into my last book, Bonhoeffer’s Cost of Discipleship, today. I read it a few years ago, but I don’t remember enough of it to discuss it meaningfully. Still, I remember that I generally enjoyed it, and so I’m looking forward to reading it again. Life can be difficult sometimes, and sometimes it can be overwhelming. Whether its work, spiritual frustration, relationship problems, or just plain loneliness and lack of purpose or direction. Honestly, whatever the problem is, I’ve always found that the root of the answer is to accept those things that actually are my responsibility (which is usually a lot of things that I don’t think are or want to be my responsiblity), and let go of those things that aren’t my responsibility (amazingly, a lot of the time these are the very things that I’m trying to take responsibility for). I’ve found that when I get my priorities in proper order and really understand my responsibilities, the problems usually resolve themselves fairly quickly. However, when I keep demanding that the world work my way they usually don’t. Anyway, for today’s exercise I’m going to give you a picture and I want you to use it as inspiration to design one part of the world you’ve started. This could be fleshing out one of the nations that you’ve already come up with or it could be creating an all new nation or continent for your world – also, just a thought, in Kalagrosh, one of the worlds that I’ve included is a world in which sound doesn’t exist – you might try doing something like this. Create a world where things just work differently. The rules of physics are completely different, or something that we take completely for granted (like sound) is non-existent, and then figure out how the world works without it. Here’s your picture:
