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.Time goes by, but how is it tracked in your world? By minutes? Hours? Are there clocks in your world? Do your characters judge the time by the passing of the sun or the stars? Are there weeks or months in your world? Are the months based on the phases of the moon. Is there a moon?
What kind of technology if found on your world? More advanced than ours or is indoor plumbing the epitome of technological wonders? Is interstellar travel possible or are smoke signals used to communicate? Computer communications or are a quill and bottles of ink needed to write notes?
Do people pay taxes to support the nobility or the government? Are tax collectors evil characters?
Did you pay your outrageous evil taxes last week? Can you judge the time without consulting a watch or your cell phone? Do you find most created worlds use time measurements similar to the real world?
