Oh, that’s what world building is

May 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

In my previous post I wrote that I had decided my world needed a conflict of its own, independent of my protagonist.  The more I thought about this, I realised I have done no world building.  I chose a generic contemporary American city as my setting, so thought I was off the hook.  D’oh!  World building isn’t just what the place looks like or what the weather is like or the way people talk.  It’s the shit that happens.  It’s the forces the bat individuals around like left over straw wrappers caught in a dust devil.
