Welcome to another day in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Find the entire list here. My theme this year is world-building. Mostly I’m asking questions that I believe need to be considered whether you creating a medieval fantasy world, a science fiction story or even a contemporary novel. The ideas I present aren’t in a particular order as I had to fit them into the alphabetical order needed. And don’t forget to visit the other blog I’m part of during the A to Z Challenge over at the IWSG. Now onto your world.If you have a town or a city in your novel, there will be buildings. What will the architecture be like? Castles or stone or wood? Hovels? Wooden dwellings? Clay bricks? Two story buildings? Formal salons? Will there be walls will guard towers? Do the windows have glass?
Is there art in your world? Paintings? Sculptures? Tapestries? Will they play into the story by depicting history or as symbols of wealth?
Any world lives or dies on its food supplies. What is agriculture like in your world? Horse or oxen pulling plows? Or are your people hunters and gatherers? Do your characters live in a city or castle where they don't know or care where their food comes from? In a medieval society the majority of the population might have to be farmers to provide enough food for everyone.
Do you include any artwork or references to art in your stories? Do you do any research on the type of architecture in your novels? Is agriculture mentioned or does food just appear?
