Basically I want to create a large land-mass in my world that is located in the northern hemisphere (I'm not sure whether to make it arctic or more Finland-like or what) I'm having a really hard time deciding on how to draw it and make it more or less scientifically accurate. I'd really like some tips as I'm totally new to this. (I did read about Geology but sadly it doesn't help much.)

    $\begingroup$ Hi! Welcome to Worldbuilding! Can you please clarify what your continent is for? Do you want to populate it with specific species? Do you need a mapping software to draw it on map? $\endgroup$ – Alexander Dec 19 '17 at 22:16

    $\begingroup$ Hi Mellow! Welcome to Worldbuilding! There are so many different ways that we might answer your question, it's difficult to choose a "best answer" (which is important around here). Deciding what you want the continent to do and how you want to use it will go a long way towards helping you make headway. $\endgroup$ – Green Dec 19 '17 at 22:17

    $\begingroup$ Since you've already done something or at least tried, why don't you share what you've got so far? $\endgroup$ – Raditz_35 Dec 19 '17 at 22:25
