S42E7 – Worldbuilding: Make it Accessible

When you build your world, you also need to consider how the reader will understand what you’ve created. If you throw a bunch of new words at them with little to no explanation, they get lost. If all you are doing is explain, they get bored.

In this episode, we talk about the best ways to make your world accessible to the reader, from making sure you minimize made-up terms to finding ways to connect it to our own world.
