Worldbuilding Wednesday – Oblectation – October 11

Through the end of 2017, Worldbuilding Wednesday themes are going to coincide with the chapters for my forthcoming workbook, The A-Zs of Worldbuilding (based off a blog series I posted back in 2014). So, if you’d like an idea of what’s coming ahead, just go peek at that. 😉

Using the theme is not required for participation, but is just a jumping point if you don’t know what to start with.

There is no giveaway winner for last week.

If you’d like to receive an early preview of the Worldbuilding Wednesday theme each week (going out on the Sunday prior to the new topic), please sign up for my newsletter and mark that you’d like to receive the Worldbuilding Wednesday Reminders.

Nuptials

Marriage serves the role of a binding agreement for the purpose of creating a stable environment. The purpose of that environment might be solidifying the claim to a throne, rearing children, transferring authority, etc. It can be one of these, or all of these.  Continue reading “Worldbuilding Wednesday – Nuptials – October 4”

Also, make sure to read to the end for some info on a Goodreads giveaway for The A-Zs of Worldbuilding! (US only, sorry folks. Sweepstakes laws were intimidating in my brief research. O.O)


I didn’t know this journey with The A-Zs of Worldbuilding would be 3 1/2 years in length.
