One piece of editorial advice I got from my, well, editor of course, was that my world was not described enough nor built. So, I’m spending time dreaming the details of my world. I know some of the information, but I need to get it out of my head and onto the page.
I flew down to Fresno yesterday to watch of friend of mine and his band play at an outdoor festival today. He was the lead singer in our band back in the 70′s. Life got in the way of our fame. >.< . What in tarnation does that have to do with world building, Ty? Well, I want the heat and dust of Fresno, and the coastlands of Santa Cruz. Fresa Cruz? Santa Fres? Fresean? Oceano? Hmm. Naming will have to come later.
What's important about this world? Maybe the stuffs that relate to the plot? One place on the world will be desolate, dusty, and, gasp, weedy. One will be lush and stroked by ocean breezes. One will be orderly, structured, prosperous and somehow enticing. A world building here I go!
