World Building – The Real Point — 1 Comment

  1. There are a few things I’d disagree with. Firstly, I was chatting to someone recently about the lack of panels nowadays about world building. Secondly, you can just design your world without stories: they’re called Role-playing Supplements. Thirdly, of course there are rules.

    Other than that, spot on. I guess it depends on your approach. Some writers spend ages interrogating their characters about their favourite colour and whether they like Thai food. Me, I like to spend time with them and get to know them, and that requires living in their world as it unfolds. Same with the world too.
