    Willow's World Building Method is a series of lessons/workshops that guide you through world building via my method. My method consists of exploring Geographical & Climate Aspects, Biological Aspects, Culture Aspects, Science & Technology Aspects, Species & Population Aspects, Magic Aspects, Government & Politics Aspects, Borders & Locations Aspects, Adversaries & Affiliate Aspects, and so many more facets of world building, in a fun and quirky way!

    I aim to make these lessons easy and fun to read. World building is my favorite thing to do and you can craft worlds for many different things, such as; roleplays, books, movies, video games, and other projects. When I create a world, I look at every single detail that can be had in a universe, even down to what the kitchen sink looks like. World building can be a fun activity to do for various projects and I can't wait to share my method with you in the coming threads.

    Geographical and Climate aspects of a world are crucial to the natural atmosphere and surfaces that make up the earth. The various land formations can be unique to the world in a variety of ways. When creating a world you should focus on the facet of the earth that excites you the most. Until you have completed all details down to the least exciting aspect of world building. This has been the introduction to the series of workshops known as "Willow's World Building Method". If you have any questions or comments, let me know! I can't wait to explore the facets of world building with you!

    This Introduction post will also have a table of contents for each of the threads in this series; listed below:
