I am announcing that I recently put out a booklet on Kindle called “The Quick Essentials of Setting and Worldbuilding.” The goal is to help a person to think through the setting before starting to write their novel or short story. If you are interested, please check it out and share this post.

More About the Booket
This booklet presents the elements needed for the creation of setting or worldbuilding. Whether your work is a short story, novel, screenplay, or video game, the setting is a very important aspect of the work. Many new authors don’t give setting enough thought and attempt to improvise it as they write. Sometimes this results in inconsistencies noticed by the reader or a setting that is much like a cardboard box.
Many books are devoted to plot and character creation. Few books detail building the setting. The ones that do often include plot and character creation, with often less devotion to the setting than this small book.
This booklet presents the elements of setting and worldbuilding in a simplified manner and helps spark ideas for your work of fiction.
By setting up a strong framework, much like character creation, you can avoid, ambiguities, mistakes, and inconsistencies. You can use the setting or the world you create to enhance the story or create conflict in your story making for a better piece of fiction. The booklet is approximately 40 pages in length.
