Recently I guest posted at SciFiSignal.com and spoke about
random generators in sci fi and fantasy (and historical) world building. It
proved to be of interest to people so much so that someone asked for more world
building information! So, what I have done is create another list of world
building assists that I believe are the best out there in the InterVerse. Below
are some of my favorite helps mainly in the form of worksheets. You may or may
not be familiar with them but they can be tremendous in creating worlds and
characters to fill them! And the best part is that they are usually
self-explanatory! This is only a partial list and Part One of this series.
**The next four links are excellent for
character/civilization/food chain/planetary worksheets: Highly recommended***
As I said this is only a partial list and numerous
worksheets have popped up in the last year. In Part Two of World Building
Worksheets I will include different types of worksheets for fiction authors
including “Rescuing Your Plot” and others! Stay tuned and post
comments on what you’d like to see included in this series on Future Imperfect!
