How do you create new worlds in a story?
Create New Worlds
As a writer, you have full control over the pieces on the board. Every decision about who does what and the path they take is up to you. Build entire universes that are as realistic as you want them to be. Unleash your imagination onto the page and feel pride bringing something to life from scratch. The possibilities are only as limited as you let them.
Think about how impressive it is to write a story or novel, and I’m not saying that because I’m a writer. First, you need the inspiration. What is the theme of your story? What idea will spark everything that comes after this? Choose your setting, your characters, the plot, how it ends. So many decisions, and it all rests on your shoulders.
It’s possible you’ll have to scrap a draft and start over. This is painful, like ripping your soul in half. I was working on a novel recently. I had it all mapped out, every chapter and main character decided on. Ten thousand words written. TEN. THOUSAND. As I was reviewing it, I decided it was too boring and didn’t have much of a plot. I was devastated, but it had to be done. Sometimes decisions change and it takes a fresh start to redo the masterpiece.
Experiment With Your Ideas
There are so many ideas bursting out of you, and your fingers can’t keep up. You’ve always wanted to create your take on popular ideas and genres in the writing world. You don’t know what you want to say, so you decide to say everything. Your purpose is to explore every adventure, every genre, and every form of written expression. You want to see what’s out there, and you keep writing no matter who’s reading your work.
Sometimes you don’t know what you like until you try it. You don’t know what you’re good at until you tackle it in a story. Don’t be afraid to branch out of the genre you think you’re supposed to write. Not everything will get published, but this will help you get a better understanding of your strengths and weaknesses.
Practice and become the master of every world! (That doesn’t sound evil at all…)
