Writing a fiction book be it action or whatever, is all about ‘creating your own world.’
Fiction writers create their own worlds with languages and cultures of their choice.
HOW TO ‘CREATE YOUR OWN WORLD.’
1.what’s the time in your world? The past,present or future.
Identify your target audience.
People like me love movies and books from the past ages of mankind.
If I read ‘IN 500 BC,’ on the back blurb of a book I buy it.
2.what’s the mode of transport in your world?
In THE LAST KINGDOM, Uhtred son of Uhtred travels on a horse same as all the Vikings.
3.Who has power and who doesn’t?
In AVATAR, the fire nation is in power while the southern water tribe and the earth benders are their subjects.
4.What’s the religion there?
What do people in your world believe in?
How do animals, trees and humans look like in your world?
Rules for the society to live by have been there from the beginning of time.
So what are the rules in your world and what’s the punishment for those that break the rules.
In my book treason is punishable by death which one is inserted into boiling water while naked.
7.Day to day life
What do the people in your world do for a living?
Where do they work?
How do they treat their young and old?
What kind of technology is there?
What’s the source of information?
8.Have a breathtaking Antagonist
When I think of LEGEND OF THE SEEKER I remember LORD RALL..
These are the guys that make your book interesting.
9.Give your Protagonist some flaws
In THE LAST KINGDOM, Uhtred son of Uhtred leaves his wife Mildrith for another woman which makes him a liar and a shameless son of a gun.
