that feeling when your worldbuilding has become so vast it's technically cosmosbuilding by now

when your royal line gets so unwieldy there's nothing for it but a family tree

that moment when you let yourself go full cyberpunk in your writing and realise that you'll probably need a personal glossary to remember what half these terms mean

just finished a kickwriting hour and have discovered what the 'neon dream plaza' in my story of the same name actually is. I wasn't expecting that...I didn't actually think it was a thing at all, just a random title I picked out of the ether 😂
