World Building Badger

So all those goals that had set for myself at the beginning of the year have fallen to the wayside. I am no longer getting married this year due to cost. The diet is on hold due to the wedding being off, the cost and also the fact that is winter and it is so much easier to lose weight when it is warmer. That leaves my last goal…To write more.

Work pressures and my health both physically and mentally are partially playing havoc with this but I am still thinking about it and trying to get stuff down. I am not role-playing at the moment but that is mainly because the site I was playing on has slowed down so I am trying to get the ideas that I have been toying with down and working on ways that they can fit together.

There is a problem, however, and that it that I have the characters but not the world itself. I guess when you come from a role playing background you are given the world and it is the character you are playing that you work into the world. I am in reverse at the moment and there is just so much to think about. Is it based on earth as an alternate reality or dystopian future, or a totally new world?

I then start to try to work the ideas I into the above choices and though I think it might be easier to work with a world based on earth the characters and their traits seem to work better with a made up world. The thought of creating a world from scratch terrifies me. Then, me being me, I start making things more complicated by adding elements that I think make it more interesting but in fact makes it more confusing. Then I wonder which audience I am aiming this at a YA or adult. I then worry about plagiarism and I haven’t even started writing yet.

As you can see I am letting my anxiety get the best of me.
