S1E6 WORLDBUILDING: A teen conversation with a professional storyteller

Jaime & Simon go over the deadly sins of worldbuilding

Season 1, episode 6
1 hr 37 min / Published

Every fictional work requires some form of worldbuilding. I'd also tell any teen who would listen, that in my opinion, worldbuilding is THE #1 most important core skill to develop if you want to craft a story that will grip a readers attention and keep it.

When creating Wanted Hero and Chronicles of a Hero, I was focused on creating a world so vest and detailed that I could spend the rest of my professional career building it and sharing it with readers.  Which is amazing, because when I chat with teens in public, most want to talk worldbuilding and what my personal system is for crafting my fictional world.

Today Simon and I delve into the subject of worldbuilding, which is a vast topic, and one we will go over in detail over time--sharing my own techniques--and also share some materials from my best-selling book 'Advanced Worldbuilding'...which was encouraged by David Farland.

Have a listen and make sure to send Simon and I questions, if you have any. Questions can be about anything at all, especially aspects of worldbuilding you'd like us to cover.
