As writers & readers I’m sure we can all appreciate that it’s in the details when it comes to creating a world. Whether that be a fantasy world, sci-fi or just an adaptation of our own – readers appreciate the details, as they make it authentic.
I for one, love any world that is detailed enough for me to come up with other stories to fit into that world. Good examples of this are of course: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and TV programs like Revolution, Falling Skies and X Files.
I’ve searched the internet high and low for worksheets and exercises to create a world this well constructed. It’s taken a long time as many things I’ve come across are only for partial world building – what I mean by this is, a single worksheet about magic in the world, or a different site that talks about developing language. None of them seem to include as much as physically possible.
That’s not to say that I’ve managed such a feat. There will come a day when I go over this workbook and embellish it – delve into the sections more and make it an even bigger project than it already is.
I’ve used this workbook with all of my story plans – and am still using it with things that are being planned now. It has worked well for me and so I hope it will work for you too.
I’ve tried to compile all of the things to consider into one workbook but I might recommend using extra paper or creating word docs of your own to expand on the sections I’ve written about if need be.
