Last year I put together an e-book of all the LB&LI virtual workshops, which proved so popular that I'll do another one again this year. I'm also going to offer the following as a companion e-book to one of my planned workshops:

2008 Left Behind & Loving It Worldbuilding Workshop e-Book

The virtual workshop will cover practical worldbuilding methods with the usual Q&A in comments, while the e-book will offer a detailed version of my worldbuilding checklist alone with some ideas, exercises and resources for writers to develop or improve their own construction process.

Discussing worldbuilding is always fun, but sharpening and focusing worldbuilding techniques so that they're effective can keep them from becoming a steady to endless drain on your time, creativity and productivity. So I think both are important.

A reminder to all writers, if you give a virtual workshop on your blog during LB&LI week (July 28th through August 3rd) and send me the applicable links, I will post them here at PBW along with mine. If you're looking for ideas, check out the comments to our LB&LI discussion here. I'll also put up more nagging about this next month.

  1. A whole workshop devoted to worldbuilding? And a book to go with it??

    This makes me happy. IN MY PANTS.

    You know what else I need? Connect The Dots 101 - Or, You Have A General Idea of What the Good Guys and Bad Guys Are Trying To Do - You Just Have No Flipping Idea How They Are Going To Go About It.

  6. nice subtle nag. I'm thinking I'm going to do one on how to make a cohesive romances within the confines of a short story/novella. ;) I've done enough of them-hopefully, I'm doing something right at this point.
