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.We know the universe is a big place. Infinite perhaps. But do your characters know that? Is their island kingdom the extent of their known universe? Perhaps their entire lifetime is spent in the same small village and its surrounds. Are they space travelers, off seeing new galaxies each chapter? Are they venturing across an unexplored sea or mountain, expanding their universe? How big is their world?
As you create a world for your characters, remember the possibilities are unlimited. The only thing holding back your world from being unique and engaging are the limits you place on your imagination.
So is the universe infinite or is there an end out there? Have you read or written a novel that takes place in one small area?
