One of my favorite procratination tools for writing is… a Map. I can spend hours coming up with maps to put my characters in physical space. And I don’t even write fantasy or science fiction. I just love a good map! I like to think of Tolkien spending hours not writing and creating those beautiful maps of Middle Earth. A good map can illuminate the hero’s journey like nothing else. While writing my WWII novel, I came across 1940’s Army maps that were the same maps my characters were looking at.
Do you have a favorite fictional map?

I love this. When I read your first line I immediately thought, “I’m going to comment about Tolkien!” Then you beat me to it.
I love maps too. I like looking more than creating but either way they are cool!
