World Building Failures

fictionwritingtips:

If you’re a writer and you actively participate in world building, I’m sure you know how exciting it can be. You probably wouldn’t be doing it so often if you didn’t enjoy it. For me, it’s one of my favorite parts of writing and it’s why I enjoy writing Fantasy.

It might seem like there’s no real way to “fail” when world building, because everything is up to your imagination. If you can create whatever you want, how could you possibly fail? However, there are ways that you can do it “wrong”…

…And by that I mean there are ways you can make it uninteresting and boring for your readers. There are ways you can focus too much on the wrong things. In order to combat this problem, I’ve come up with a few ways you can fail at world building, so hopefully you can avoid them in the future.

Too much world building, not enough focus on characters.

It’s easy to get caught up in building your world that you forget to focus on characters. Character building and how they interact with the world you created is just as important as world building. Don’t focus all your time on creating an insanely original interesting world if you’re not going to create characters to go along with it. The world should support your characters and how they go about their daily lives. Don’t make those two separate things or there will be a serious disconnect. You need to show the greatness of your world by having your characters interact with it. Otherwise, what’s the point?

You never had a real understanding of how your world operates.

If you don’t understand how your world works, no one else will. If you say your world is run by magic, take the time to explain HOW it works. I’m not saying that everything needs to be scientifically explained, especially in a world where science might not matter, I just think you need to explain how it all works together to support your world. Make sure you ask yourself questions to flesh out your world. Where do people work? How do they go about their daily lives? Where do they live? How do they speak? It all needs to feel cohesive.

You based it TOO much on Earth’s history.

A lot of people avoid making their worlds diverse because they claim “it wasn’t like that back then”. The whole point of writing Fantasy and world building is that you can change things. Don’t refuse to include something because it didn’t happen that way in our history. You’re not writing historical fiction, you’re world building. You’re most likely writing Fantasy. A big failure that I see is some writers feel the need to follow a timeline that doesn’t need to exist in their stories. Get creative!
