No, I haven’t fallen off the edge of the planet. Not yet, anyway. Lesson Seven, Worldbuilding, is almost completed, and I’ve learned more (and less) about the world I’ve created than I ever wanted to know. Philosophy and politics are still weak. Action, romance, and who-did-what-to-whom are strong. Everything else? Hard to say. This lesson humbled me.
I’m not a stick by stone Worldbuilder, but I need more precise details. I think the folks who read the draft will probably agree.
When the cut and paste, blood and gore typing revision starts in December this lesson will help. A lot.
Lesson Eight is:
Wrapping Up Triage
Final Details of Target, Promises,
Story, and Theme
Wow. Oh well. Onward!
