Setting and World-Building Workbook

Like character creation, developing a believable fictional world is a process that becomes more defined with experience. If you're just starting out, however, planning your foundation will make the overall writing process a lot easier. This workbook contains twenty location templates, ten group templates, a series glossary, a timeline and history index, a section for series rules to maintain continuity, and prompts to help with brainstorming. For visual authors or stories that may require sets, there is space for sketches, maps, and layouts.
