I am a young author who writes about a land only known as The Vast World. It is about Botan and his descendants who fight, conquer, and explore. But I am just a student who knows the basics and does this during my free time. This is why I am doing Worldbuilding. I need to know more about how things work in reality and how I can apply them to my world.
The interesting thing about my worldbuilding experience is that when I found out about what worldbuilding was, I had already done a lot of the worldbuilding steps. I was inspired by JRR Tolkien's Middle Earth and I decided that I wanted to make my own world with my own characters. So I began drawing maps, and soon I had gotten a notebook documenting the story of a great explorer in the world. After that, I began writing other blurbs about the history of the world, and I started a timeline of all the major events. A while after this I found worldbuilding, and I realized I had already done a lot of the main worldbuilding steps. So I joined this community, to make my world even better and get advice from people who know a lot more than me on this subject.
