One response to “Writing Snippets Classics: World Building 101

    World-building is so important, although more for SF/F than for most of the other genres. I prefer “atmosphere.” In my Horror novels I may not make up setting/worlds, but I do my best to describe them with as much tone and originality as possible.
    Keep up the podcasts! 🙂
