[ezcol_1half]Why Should I Build a World?
So why should you bother to expend all the effort and energy needed to create a fictional world?
Only a small fraction of what you create is going to be seen in the story. What does it matter that 300 years before the story even starts that a group of people tried to stage a religious uprising and convert the world to dandelion worshippers? (All hail the mighty fluff! Stare in awe as it floats on the wind to propagate a new generation!)
Have you read the Lord of the Rings? Or a Song of Fire and Ice?
Both feel rich and vibrant because the world around the story has been fleshed out. It’s not just a prop for the characters to walk past or through. It’s almost a character in its own right!
