Hello Space Cadets, how are you today? I’m doing outstanding, getting ready for the launch of my debut novel The Legion Awakes and hoping everyone loves it. Paying back my mom for what we spent in the pre-publication stage wouldn’t hurt either! To do that, people have to find me, so that lets me justify my time playing on my blog. Shh, if anyone asks it’s for work (nods vigorously).
Today I wanted to talk to you about a feature of Tim’s website that has a metric frakk ton of information about his world building. He labels these Infopedia’s, and they read like an encyclopedia entry. They’re written in from the perspective of future historians studying the past, the eras we both write in. It was a lot of fun to read when I was first introduced to his world as a reader. I often refer to it as I write as well, and since I started this World Building Series Tim has been inspired to update this section on his own blog.
In addition, these posts serve as additional cannon support for the Universal Codex that my editor posted about over on his blog. Sometimes they’re called other things as well; Universe Bible, World Building Style Guide or their brain dumps. If you don’t follow him, and you love reading and writing, you should check him out.
I’m sorry this wasn’t a more exciting post, but I felt that I needed to point everyone in the right direction to see the building blocks of my works. From here on out, I’ll be focusing on the things I added to the universe and will let Tim embellish his own idea babies. Hopefully this helps, and wasn’t too disappointing. As you know, I’ve been handling the pre-publication details of my first two novels.
Until next time, stay frosty and don’t forget to keep your powder dry!
