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.Can any of us escape politics? Even small towns and villages have their share of politics. Teenage cliques have their share of politics. How will you address them in your story? Will there be people who have the actual job of being a politician as in our societies? How will politicians come into power? Will there be warring factions? How much power will the politicians have over the military and citizens?
Are your characters goings to live in a large city? What will population centers be like? Thirty families in a village? A few million in a city? Thousands settled on a distant planet or a few hundred flying together in a spaceship or riding a wagon train to a new land? Will your world have many population centers or one large city among many smaller settlements?
Do you like city or rural settings? Do you see politics are work in your story setting? Sick of politics at work? Does today's world give us all a tendency to make politicians a bit slimy?
