In today’s episode, I outline a guide for world-building amazing fantasy cities – like the one Hanrahan created in The Gutter Prayer. Here’s my key world-building lessons learnt from this book:
1. Consider the first scene as a microcosm
2. The first scene sets the tone
3. Explore your interests
4. Consider how different characters react to the same world.
5. More ideas is better than not enough
6. Layer it up!
7. Treat the city as a character
8. It’s about the intertwining
