Fantasy Worldbuilding Questions by Patricia C. Wrede, http://www.sfwa.org/writing/worldbuilding1.htm – These are specifically geared toward fantasy worlds, but they’re esily adapted to any other kind of worldbuilding. This is a much more expansive look at the aspects of the world mentioned briefly above.
The Rules of Quick and Dirty Worldbuilding by Annalee Newitz http://io9.com/5039477/the-rules-of-quick-and-dirty-worldbuilding – This takes on more of a science fiction bent, but again has some advice that can be generalized to other worldbuilding.
The Mythopoets Manual by Loren J. Miller http://www.rpgmud.com/WorldBuilding/Mythopoets/tmm.html – Specifically looks at the issue of religion.
Worldbuilding Links http://www.bmarch.atfreeweb.com/Worldbuilding.htm – A collection of links to other worldbuilding resources.
World Builder Projects http://hiddenway.tripod.com/world/ – Another collection of links to other worldbuilding resources.
Our next meeting we’ll discuss red herrings which is scheduled for Sunday, June 14, 2009 from 12:00 (possibly 12:15pm) -3:00 pm at the library. More information to come.
