Worldbuilding is a massive task, writers!
Every aspect, from how food is gathered to what kind of government rules the land to how holidays are celebrated can all impact a story so much! (After all, if it means something to the characters, then it shapes the overall novel!)
There are maps to draw, religions to create, timelines to establish….
The world your story takes place in is like its own character, in a way. By the end of the book, it should have changed in some way, too!
Where do you even start?
You’ve come to the right course!
With 34 pages full of lessons, templates, and worksheets, it covers all of the basics.
Daily life, including politics and career choices—and why those things matter
Holidays, which tell us so much about a culture and can be a break from the tragedies plaguing your characters
Religion; how to develop one and why it might matter in your book
History, which will influence everything from how different people groups interact to what the landscape looks like
Mapmaking, which isn’t nearly as daunting as it feels like it is
Plus there are a ton of blank maps just waiting to be filled in—include some for you science fiction writers!—and a simple timeline to keep things nice and organized!
Once you’ve worked your way through this course—at your own pace!—you will have a beautiful map to show off, a world that is populated with unique people and beautiful cultures, and a perfect setting for your wonderful story!
