Shannon Stacey


I’m hoping to be back in full swing tomorrow…Sunday at the latest.

And worldbuilding is HARD! I don’t know how people do it. What I do know is that reading Holly’s Diplomacy of Wolves and PBW’s Private Demon and Dark Lover by J.R. Ward has shown me how high the bar is set. Forget even touching the high bar. I’m not even in the gym yet. So I’m toiling away at trying to figure out the hell people create these incredible worlds/alternate realities.

    Worldbuilding is damn hard, but doable. But the worst thing you can do is compare yourself to another author. Take your time and build your own world in your own way. And as long as you stick to your own rules, you’re good to go, babe.

    And get out from :hide: or I’ll take your Doritos away. :whip:
