I speak for myself when I say worldbuilding is hard. I decided to take a peek at my manuscript again with fresh eyes after finished it many months ago. Seeing the way it was allowed me to see that even if it was perfect (to me), it needed a little work.
I’ve taken a couple of days to head back into revision hell and even if it’s quite easy for me, it’s still tough. I’ve cut out so many things that I felt would have dragged down the book. Most of what I changed/removed, I felt wouldn’t work anymore.
This mean deleting over 6k and more words only to rewrite everything so it can fit perfectly. Trust me, it hurt. Especially when I changed the ages to suit the genre. But honestly it’s worth it because the path it’s taking might turn out for the best!
But revising came easy once I built a calendar for my world as an outline for myself. It’s my first time every creating an outline. I don’t normally give an outline for plot at all. I just pick a creative idea and then pants it all the way through. Anyway, the calendar thing was a great idea. I got to learn about my world a little but more because of it.
One day, I hope everyone can enter it and enjoy it as much as I do.
