One of my funding goals for the New Worlds Patreon was bonus essays. I promised four posts each month, on Fridays — but some months have five Fridays. Since we’ve reached that funding goal (did it right out of the gate, in fact), our first bonus is “Worldbuilding as a Habit of Thought,” discussing how to incorporate the kinds of details I’ve been discussing without having to go through a laundry list of topics every time you sit down to write. Comment over there!
And don’t forget: if you become a patron, you get weekly photos, plus perks like the ability to request topics, the chance to get personalized answers on worldbuilding questions, and even critiques of your work. Plus we’re not far from the next funding goal, which will bring book reviews into the mix!
