15 Minute Fantasy Writer Video 7: World Building Part 4

world building part 4

Welcome back to the 15 Minute Fantasy Writer video series!

It is time to move on with world building in part 4. We’ve come so far from video 1 where we discussed how choosing the era helps you world build, including knowing the presumptions readers will make about your story! We’ve outlined the rules of magic, and jumped into creating a map, including a discussion on how it is for more than readers. A map will help you create a more realistic setting for your writing.

Now it is time to add people to your world!

Even traditional fantasy cultures should feel like they evolved in the world you created and not like a transplant from someone else’s story. This video delves into the steps to do that in an efficient manner! So lets get going!

Are you ready to add people and cultures to your world? I hope so!

Look for next video soon. And it the last World Building video, we’ll take everything and use it to enhance your characters and their development.

If you missed any of the previous, check them out on the 15 Minute Fantasy Writer page. AND if you want to pick up the World Building worksheet for FREE, check it out here.

What are your favorite fantasy races? Do you care if a culture is “borrowed” straight from a different novel… like Tolkien? Let me know in the comments!

Do you have topics you’d like me to cover? Do you want to submit a video of you reading a clip of your story for Open Mic? Great! Head over to the 15 Minute Fantasy Writer page and read how.
