Update on Fantasy World Building

February 6, 2009 in Fantasy, On Writing by pacejmiller

Just a quick update on my earlier posts about building/creating a fantasy world and how to create a map of that world.

Today I came across the One of Us creative writing website, which has a fabulous article called ‘How to Create Fantasy Worlds’.  It’s an introductory article but it has links to other resources, including mapping, information on mythical creatures, names and languages.  There’s even a forum on it.

The website also has separate pages on writing tips and a more general discussion forum with various writing sub-categories as well as specific articles.

I think it’s a pretty cool website and aspiring writers should check it out.
