it was amazing

As a writer, I found this book to be super helpful for thinking through all the elements that go into creating a fantastical or science fiction world. Honestly, even if you're writing about a time in the historical past or a place of the world that you've never lived, this book would be useful. It encourages you to consider everything from wild life and plants to religions and family... and so much more that can potentially use to help create plot complications and inform the motives of different characters. It includes exercises to help you work through these different world elements, if you're so inclined. It's probably the most accessible and practical book on this topic that I've personally come across.
