I highly recommend!
The question I hear most from beginners about building a fantasy storyworld is, “Where do I start?” Oz, Wonderland, Narnia, the 100 Acre Wood, Neverland, Hogwarts, the United Federation of Planets, Westeros, Middle Earth, Alagaesia, Terabithia, Gotham City, Jurassic Park, Fablehaven, and a galaxy far, far away. These fictional places have become real in the minds and hearts or readers. These storyworlds that someone invented—someone who was once like you, learning to tell stories, learning to write, and dreaming about publishing a novel. Whether you’re starting from scratch or are looking to add depth to a finished story, Storyworld First will get you thinking. Includes tips for worldbuilding: Astronomy * Magic * Government Map making * History * Religion Technology * Languages * Culture And how it all works together.
