Worldbuilding

Worldbuilding (A well-developed setting)

In fantasy writing, you must develop your setting thoroughly. This is often referred to as worldbuilding. A writer must create a place where fantasy elements of the story are believable and feel real to allow the reader a “Suspension of disbelief”; a reader knows magic doesn’t exist, but is willing to believe what the writer is showing.


Consider the following when starting the process of developing your setting:


  • What does your world look, sound and smell like?


  • What is the landscape, climate, man-made structures and people's appearances like?


  • What are its people like – any distinct groups or classes? How does society work?


  • Who holds power in your world? Rulers, governments, etc.


  • Where do your characters fit into this world?
