Worldbuilding is an integral part of writing fantasy. It helps you inform your story and setting, while simultaneously ensuring reader immersion.
More often than not, the world the author has created becomes a character in itself.
There are lots of things to keep track of though. A great solution can be to create a ‘world bible’.
This can be a ring binder (although – from personal experience – not recommended) or a folder on your computer where you store all the necessary information.
However, nowadays, there are also several online tools which can be incredibly helpful.
Dave Robinson, the President of Archivos, joins the Am Writing Fantasy podcast for a chat about the wealth of tools available for fantasy authors.
