The World in the Satin Bag has moved to my new website.  If you want to see what I'm up to, head on over there!

Adventures in Worldbuilding: Questions I ask myself (because I'm mental)...

1) How the heck do I write a mystery story involving a framing of a drug dealer in a fantasy world?

2) Is it possible to have a continent that spirals out from a central point with three arms (kind of like a galaxy), or is that just fantasy nonsense? Something like this:
3) How much information is too much for a short story set in a fantasy world? In a novel, you would have the option to spend a considerable amount of time establishing scene, but not so in a short story. Confusing.

4) What is it like being a giant frog person? How do I get in the head of such a person, considering that I have never been a frog before (though I may have dressed up as one when I was a youngin')?

5) What is the best beverage for stirring the creative juices? Hmm...

Thoughts?

(This whole "Adventures in Worldbuilding" thing has become a real feature, hasn't it?  So be it.  I like talking about what I'm doing in the writing world, even if it's completely random and weird.)

  1. 1) Same way you'd do it in the real world.
    2) Possible, but improbable, but who the eff cares, cause it's a FANTASY.
    3) Just enough to establish setting. Around 10% of overall wordcount max.
    4) You live in swamps. Just imagine that, now make everything slimy and know that you can grab meals clear across the room.
    5) Rockstar Punch. Delicioso.
