A history of the imagination

User donnamaw posted something to their sandbox recently:

It's about the origins of their mapping - an OOC discussion of how their geofiction came to be.

It inspired me, and I got quite carried away. I have posted my own documentation of my geofictions over at my blog:

A fine read Luciano.

You have whole worlds there, vying for a logical place in your own 'universal theory of everything in your imagination', and it is interesting to read how you manage that, the successes and failures as you perceive them. Your countries and people go back a long way in real time too, becoming deeper and richer with layers of real world experience added to them. It's fascinating. I do feel that the most interesting part of a fictitious nation's created history is the history of creating the nation's fiction...

Thanks also for the mention - I must get that article done now, you've given me the extra push to finish something!

It's all meant in good taste and you will see from my own wiki work that I'm a big fan of benevolent dictatorships, so the mention ought to be taken as a sideways compliment! If however you are offended, I'm happy to change it.

Ahh ... I see heheh. I wasn't offended and it doesn't need changing. Plus to be fair, that isn't an inaccurate description of me during my Commonia days. 😬🙃
