Building Worlds by Oren Litwin

Although it doesn’t seem to be an active blog anymore, I stumbled onto a great blog with lots of helpful stuff for world building, especially since it deals with areas that are typically largely understated in this process, such as Politics, Military, Economics, and Education. I’m learning a lot and I’m sure it will all help as I begin sketching out the world of the Book Book. I hope you will check it out!

I was planning on walking down to my favorite local coffee shop today – and maybe I still will¬†– but I found myself dragging along in the ‘afternoon slump’. But, I was determined. I told myself, that if I found the motivation to write, then I could have a yummy London Fog or Iced¬†Mona Lisa Latte. On the flip side, I said that if I found the motivation to write, then I HAD to walk in the hot hot outside and write at said coffee shop.

I have a free coffee. I feel like this information is important. Also, it’s only¬†five¬†minutes away. Five¬†minutes of heat isn’t fatal, is it? #Idontgooutside

This site is abounding with awesome writing blogs, catering more specifically to Fantasy and Science Fiction writers. And as I read, I found these excellent articles and thought I would share!
