Last week, I posted about time wasters. Well, how about something that can both fun and helpful. If you write in a speculative genre that isn't set on our world, you have to create your own world. There are tools out there to do just that. The one I like in particular is Fractal World Generator. Not only can you pick the type of map, but chose criteria that affects the world you get--like percentage of ice and water. Then you can save the map it generates. Neat-o.
