WORLD BUILDING

Before I started my first fantasy book, I had difficulty building the history, lore, and overall structure of my stories’ respective worlds. As a result, my stories’ worlds were all over the place to the point in which they confused my readers. One of the most important aspects of writing stories is building your world. When I wrote Numen the Slayer, I managed to build my own fantasy world from the ground up. I managed this by binge-watching countless medieval historical documentaries and was able to model various kingdoms, characters, and events on what I learned. One of the best way to build a world is to take something like a historical event and use it as a blueprint on how you want your world to be shaped. I enjoy world building lately because it allowed me to have a much more vivid picture on what kind of world my characters lived in and what kind of world I wanted my readers to see.
