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.Do your characters wear any jewelry? Is it a sign of wealth, a magical tool, a keepsake of a lost loved one? Is it made of precious metals and filled with rare gemstones? Are you going to invent gems and precious metals?
Are your characters going to use words that have meaning to them or their contemporaries? Is there a special jargon that will give your characters a unique voice? Will different species or regional groups use identifying jargon to distinguish them from others?
Have you read a book where jewelry or gemstones were used as magical focus or storage props? Have you read books where the unique jargon stuck with you or perhaps even frustrated you? Are you keeping up with A to Z?
