Recently, I reviewed YA fantasy novel Heart of Mist by debut author Helen Scheuerer. I really enjoyed it, so to promote this wonderful lady even more, I’m going to do a little Q&A with her in this post! Hope you enjoy it. If you have any more questions, leave them in the comments and I’ll see if I can get an answer for you.
I’ve always loved creating new worlds and completely building them from the ground up. Do you have a specific process when it comes to world building? What’s your favourite thing to create?
I definitely have a process when it comes to world building, and actually – it’s the same sort of process I use for creating characters too. I always start with a very vague notion of a location or a person in my head, and then I layer more detail in, draft after draft. It’s a long and difficult process, but I really struggle to create something authentic from the get-go. I need to take my time getting to know the place or the character, and work authentic details in naturally.
