Remember when we were kids how we’d imagine things that weren’t there? A tree could be a castle. A puddle could be a lake holding a mythical creature.
We were building worlds before we knew what worldbuilding was. As we grew older we were told that we had to live in the real world and pretend that the real world was better than anything we could imagine.
But we knew that wasn’t true.
Worldbuilding allows us to escape to the places that we want to live and experience. And now we have the ability to share our worlds with anyone so they can experience them as well.
As long as you know what you’re doing.
