One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other. Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.
This week’s topic is:
When you build a world for your setting, do you tend to base it off of real-world places? If so, do you have any specific ways you alter it to make the world “yours” or do you try to stay true to the real world places? If you do not base your story’s world off of reality, how do you make the setting understandable for your readers without getting bogged down with less-exciting descriptions and details?
Let’s discuss this in the comments and see what our community thinks.
