During the winter months I designed and illustrated The Point of View Writing Map, part of a series of illustrated diagrams written by Shaun Levin. The exercises on the Writing Map are devised to inspire stories and even novels. The extended creative writing prompts can help you develop stories, or can be done in short and playful bursts as warm-up exercises.
The Voice and POV Map is #2 in the Craft Writing Maps. The A3 map (297x420mm) folds down to A6 (105x148mm, postcard size), and is printed on 130gsm recycled paper in England.
This was a really fun project to work on, creating environments, characters and situations to reflect and propel the written exercises. I enjoyed the challenge of presenting the information in the map layout and working with a mixture of conventional fonts and hand drawn type. It was very exciting receiving the physical maps in the post a couple of days ago!
