World Building Tips to Keep in Mind

fictionwritingtips:

World building is the process of creating a fictional or imaginary world that is the basis of your novel or series.  These worlds usually have their own histories, geographies, back stories, species, etc.  Although the world you’re creating is fictional, it will most likely share aspects of our own realities.

There are a few things you should understand before you begin world building. Make sure you keep these things in mind:

Your world has to make sense.

I’m not saying you can’t switch things up, but everything that happens has to be a logical part of YOUR OWN world. Your characters should react appropriately based on his or her environment. Properly setting up your world will help us understand your characters, so make sure you take the time to develop it.  Excellent world building means nothing if you don’t take the time to share it with your audience.

The culture of your world does not have to be the same as it was in our histories.

A lot of fantasy novels lack diversity because people say to themselves “well, that’s the way it was.” First of all, that’s not always the case.  Secondly, YOU’RE CREATING YOUR OWN WORLD. You don’t have to abide by our history. While you should always show respect for the cultures you’re basing things on, you don’t have to follow what’s happened in our own world. Get creative and build a world no one’s ever seen before.

Figure out what sort of technology your world has and spend time developing it.

There are so many novels I’ve read where the technology doesn’t make sense. Sometimes a world has all this crazy technology, but they’re still behind on medical advancements. You can do what you want, but make sure it matches up and make sure it’s believable. Also, there will be some sections of your world that will be poorer than others, so places won’t have the technology of the richer areas. Take some time to think about how class and race will play a part on where certain technologies are utilized.

Be as creative and crazy as you want. Why participate in world building if you don’t use it to your advantage? Put in everything you love. Have fun creating your own world. If you do it in a thoughtful way, everyone will enjoy it.
