Fantasy World Building & Writing Tips

Welcome to Build a Fantasy World!

As the name suggests, this site is about all things fantasy world building.

From general writing, to fantasy worldbuilding, this blog will be full of tips and ideas that should help you on your quest to write great fantasy novels!

If you’re like me and love fantasy fiction and are amazed and inspired by the amount of work that goes into building worlds, then this blog is for you. It will be particularly useful for beginners in the genre but there should also be something for the pros too:)

I’ll be going into a few different topics you might want to think about when building your world, so things like:

  • Mapping your world
  • Society structures
  • Magic systems and creatures
  • Religion
  • Politics & foreign relations

I’ll also be writing the odd post about fantasy fiction in general, why it’s great, why it’s so hard to write and how it inspires us to create our own worlds.

Guest blogging

I’d love to hear from fellow fantasy writers. If you’d like to write a guest post on this blog, then take a look the guest blogging page where you’ll find a couple of guidelines and instructions on how to post.

If you’d rather just look around feel free to say hello, share ideas, suggestions and tips in the comment sections.

About me

My name’s Kara and I love fantasy fiction. Like a lot of people my age, my first experience of it was Harry Potter. Harry Potter opened up a world I could escape into and since then I’ve wanted to recreate that feeling. I’m currently writing a high fantasy series based on my love of both fantasy and ancient history.

Any questions or thoughts you want to share, pop them in the comments and I’ll get back to you soon. Hope you enjoy reading!
