PLANNING A SHORT STORY
Mapping a Fictional World
Writers will create a birds-eye map of their story’s landscape and learn how world-building decisions can shape the events of a plot.
- Plain paper or writer’s notebook
- If desired, How To Create a Fictional World Printable
In this mapping exercise, writers will explore the specific details of their fictional worlds. While this video may be used as a stand alone mini-lesson, it was developed as part of our series, Inklings Book Prep Course, in honor of our annual Inklings Book writing contest.
