What did I learn from reading this week? That every fantasy novel must include a map. And that men appreciate this map far more than woman. The hunky hubby will pour over a book’s map, imagining himself crossing the mountains of mortality or being blown to smithereens by the voluptuous volcano of vengeance. I tend to briefly glance at the map and my lovely sister openly mocks any directionally helpful page included in a book that she is reading. The male and the female human are truly different creatures are they not?

I do tease about the fictional map, but have found myself glancing back in order to place my character apropriatly in my mind adn distance them from their goal. I espessially think the maps of fantasy books are funny because they are purly imagination. :O) and you are right! I dont think I have come across a man book which does not contain a map. You think they would use one in real life too!
So funny that they then won’t use one in real life… 😉 But I do prefer that my books have maps if they are not real worlds. It makes things easier to imagine if you have a frame of reference for direction and distance.
