W is for World Building
World building. Believe it or not it’s one of my favorite things to do, but then I cut so much of it out of my stories. Why? Because somewhere along the way I heard that people didn’t want to read extensive world building and setting.
It’s a shame really. I have all these amazing places in my head.
However, I finally realized something and I’ve made a decision. All those people with opinions read and write YA. Youth don’t care as much about details like world building. However, I don’t write YA. At least Talia’s story isn’t YA.
I’m traveling to a new planet in the sequel to The Magic Wakes and I’m going to indulge myself in my world building. And I don’t plan on cutting it when I’m done with the story. I figure if I’m going to live my dream and write all of Talia’s story, then I need to do it in the way that I experience it. And that means the worlds in my head.
You can look forward to a richer world in Search For Knowledge! More descriptions, sights, smells, colors and sounds. There will be a better developed government system and more science to mix with my magical world. And, the third side of my triangle will be introduced. Here’s the complete tagline for the series.
