Geofiction

I am a geofiction enthusiast - it's What I Do. All this writing, all these doodles, they're all just attempts to get this stuff out of my head and into the air between my eyes and yours. 90% of my creative work revolves around the things I've discovered and designed. That's why I have two massive wikis filled with data, descriptions, and ideas for two major universes and several isolated fantasy worlds. That's why I'm teaching people to speak a fictional language. It's what I do.

Oh, you're curious about that?

What Is Geofiction, Exactly?

Geofiction is a niche term for a form of worldbuilding that is done for worldbuilding's sake, rather than as merely a background to a particular story or character. If the story is the chicken, geofiction is the egg; given enough attention and time, a clutch of worlds will hatch stories, whether you intended them to or not. Worldbuilding itself is the art of developing a fictional world, including cultures, languages (see 'conlangs' below), technology, history, weaponry, magic, religion, philosophy, physiology, psychology, flora, fauna, physics, etc. You can worldbuild in any genre, including realistic fiction: if you made up a town for the setting of your high school drama or modern warfare short story, you've worldbuilt.

And These Conlang & Cypher Things?

Conlangs have been called many things: constructed languages, model languages, articial languages, giant wastes of time, and self-inflicted headaches are among the most common terms. Conlangs can be as complex as real-world languages or as simple as a handful of vocabulary terms and no syntax.

Cyphers are letter-exchangers, trading one letter for another to make a code that may or may not be pronunciable; some cyphers use numbers and symbols as well.
