Okay, so, you remember our last post on Alis’ Rules of Writing? In it, I said Rule #8, which was “No one actually gives a shit about your worldbuilding”, and then some more explanation to that effect.
Well, on Tumblr yesterday, yellingintothevoid saw said post, and added:
I’d be very interested in your worldbuilding essay. I’ve always thought worldbuilding is my weakest point, which has been borne out by agent/publisher reactions. You know, if you were going to write it anyway.
And because Tumblr is so terrible for conversations, I figured I’d answer the question here.
