I’ve done a lot of writing for The Art of World Building this past month, including completed chapters on creating monsters, gods, and world figures like heroes and villains. Each has a new template, too. I’ve also drafted much of a chapter on inventing undead, travel considerations, and another on creating organizations like the X-men, Knights of the Round Table, and other informal groups out to do good or evil.
I currently plan to publish the book as three separate volumes of roughly 30,000 words each, which is an awful lot of world building advice! Volume 1 is nearing completion but I’ll be sitting on it until the entire project is complete.
