We’ve added a new link to our blog chains: the wrap-up. A official end to the chain with links to all the fabulous posts.
Well, what a wild and crazy ride that was! I am consistently impressed by my chain gang buddies.
I absolutely loved reading all the responses on creating story worlds.
Here’s a quick recap:
I started our chain on story worlds discussing how my setting was unexpectedly chosen by Child Protective Services and the route of the California Zephyr.
Michelle McLean wowed us with her passion for history and research.
Kate Karyus Quinn shared her struggle to define her Urban Fantasy World.
Over on Archetype Writing, Carolyn discussed defining rules for a Sci Fi/Fantasy world.
Sandra Ulbrich Almazan continued the Sci Fi discussion with how she bases her story world features on emerging technologies.
Kristal Shaff felt that research was a necessary evil to bring her fantasy world to life.
Mary Lindsay stole the show with a timely post discussing her research into the Great Storm in Galveston in 1900 and the recent Hurricane Ike.
Abi at bloggingexperiments contrasted the imagination involved in her fantasy world creation to the research needed for her cozy mystery.
Elana focused on the world-building aspects of her fantasy novel and the importance of making the setting part of the story.
Terri Rainer shared the amazing story of how she found the setting she’d imagined in Scotland.
And finally, Leah Clifford let her MC Eden guest blog about the world she lives in.
All in all, it was a rocking great chain, and I loved reading all my chain gang buddies’ thoughts.
The next chain is started by the always fabulous Mary Lindsay.
