One thing that sometimes intimidates people (me included) when it comes to worldbuilding is the fear of being overwhelmed by the creation of an entire world. I find that what helps me is to come up with an idea for a creature/character and to create the world around them. But then I know others who begin with the world itself and fill in the spaces as they go along. So how do you worldbuild? Do you build from the ground up, or from the sky down? Do you have a checklist or do you start with a general map? Share your techniques and your method of attack here!
