I just read a blog post by CJ Bernstein about how he created an interactive game to build his reading list prior to publishing his first book. While I don’t have the time to do that myself it got the wheels turning. How would you feel about me sharing the world building from Tales From the Salem Grimoire as I come up with it? I’ve been focused on the main plots of the story and let the reality of a magical world slip by. Let me know in the comments what you think. I would probably use Wattpad as the hub for it. Or maybe Wikia.
If I did, would you comment and share the world? How much control would you want? voting on pivotal pieces? Histories? What?
What are the best things about fantasy worlds in your opinion? Would you want to participate in your favorite author’s world-building process? What kinds of things would you want to help with?
