30 Days of Writing: Day Twelve

In what story did you feel you did the best job of worldbuilding? Any side-notes on it you’d like to share?

Since I’ve always considered the VS universe to exist within our reality, on our planet, sandwiched in some rip in space/time (the best thing I can compare it to is the likes of Gotham or Metropolis, although that’s probably an insult to both), there isn’t as much excitement involved in worldbuilding than would be expected within, say, a fantasy or science fiction settling. The only aspect of ‘building’ that takes place in my series is the creation of a fictional city, which I’ll go into detail more with the maps question, later.

That’s not to say there isn’t any fun to just creating a nameless city inhabited by vampires trying to defend themselves against vampire slayers while trying to bring back really old, dead vampire gods. I still have the joys of creating the city layout (which I will cover in a future question), as well as the communities who live there, plus the sociology and history of an entire race.

Don’t really have any sidenotes on it. Kind of a lacklustre answer, I know. Sorry.

I think I’m still in mourning for my MacBook, which got packaged up and sent away today, and I’m sure I’ll perk right the way up when the shiny new MacBook Pro arrives.
