Introduction to World-Building

 

Whether partially or fully fictional, developing an effective and engrossing story world is no easy task. After all, a story world is more than just a fictional setting or society; it’s the cultures and capabilities that impact every aspect of your characters’ stories and the characters themselves.

 

Like any part of the writing process, effective world-building takes time, intention, and attention to detail.  Join Daniel as he breaks down each of the major elements you should consider when building your story’s fictional world.

Hear ye! Hear ye!

Shower Moments and Other Muses: Finding Inspiration in a Crazy World

with Shelly X. Leonn

 

For writers, the greatest feeling in the world is receiving a flash of sudden inspiration. Maybe you figure out how to fill a nagging plot hole, or maybe you come up with the perfect line to wrap up some intense dialogue. Usually, we stumble into these moments when we're doing something else, like showering or walking the dog. In this workshop, we will discuss how writers can foster their own "shower moments" throughout their daily routine. We will also discuss how writers can create the time and energy necessary for more shower moments, even in slightly chaotic times such as these.
