World Building

World building is probably one of the biggest challenges I face.  In my mind, the world is as clear and real as my own, but as I write, world building somehow gets forgotten.  Instead, I focus on my characters and plot, filling in the world, even when it doesn’t come across in my pages.  It isn’t that world building is all that difficult, it is that my mind fills in the world, and I often forget that my readers aren’t inside my mind.

So how am I going to fix this problem?  Well, first, I’ve decided that I need to spend more time reading my book in large chunks, versus chapter by chapter, and noticing whether the little details in my head actually reach the page.  Second, I am going to write a list of the things that make my world really unique and make sure that those things have actually been written and described.  In this way, hopefully, I will really improve my world building skills.

Well, wish me luck!  I feel like every week I try to improve on a different aspect of my writing, which logically means one day my writing will be flawless… right?
