S42E2 – Worldbuilding: Make it Personal

Readers explore the world through the eyes of your character. This means that if you want to make your worldbuilding real to your reader, you need to make it relevant to your characters.

This can be done through having the character learn about the world, such as in a portal fantasy or hidden society story. Or you can simply reveal the world by showing how the world interests the characters.

Listen for more about how to make your worldbuilding personal.
