I had an absolute blast taking part in the world-building panel with these talented authors. If you couldn’t make it to San Jose, here’s what happened. Thank you so much Kirsten for inviting me and documenting the panel… Oh, and the video rocks!!!

If you couldn’t make the Clockwork Alchemy panel, World Build to a Better Story, never fear. I jotted down some notes — advice from my fellow panelists, Emily Thompson, Gigi Pandian, and Dover Whitecliff. Since I was also chairing the panel, I didn’t capture everything or everyone’s answer (sorry, fellow panelists). But for what it’s worth, here are my notes:
Q: What does world building mean to you?
Emily: World building is the background, not the driving force.[Tweet this!]
Gigi: Don’t take the reader’s imagination for granted. Don’t assume they understand the scene. The details of the scene and world have to be on the page.
