Plans for May, World building

You deserve to know, right off the bat, that this month is going to be sort of heavy on fantasy writing.  If you write fantasy, you’ll love it.  if not, I’ll be doing my best keep it relevant to all fiction writing.  At the very least, I’ll be telling jokes.  You guys like my jokes, right?  Right?!

World building is so much fun.  I mean, you get to make your own rules for how your world is going to work.  So many, in fact, that I easily had more than a month worth of topics to cover, so I had to pick my favorite.

This month we’ll talk about,

  • Currency and food.
  • Weather, clothing and map making.
  • Languages and literature.
  • Calendars.
  • And of course, it wouldn’t be a month of world building if I didn’t offend someone by talking about religion.

Of course, we’ll have our normal collection of great new blogs and apps.  I’ll be dissecting some new poetry forms and giving you some fun exercises to build your fantasy world.  Are you excited?  I am.
