Worldbuilding Wednesday – Food – August 9

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.

This week’s giveaway winner is Sabrina Fish!

(Sabrina, please contact me and let me know if you’d like The A-Zs of Worldbuilding eARC, or the worldbuilding critique.)

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.

Feel free to grab this badge for your post!

But everything was made from scratch. No canned pumpkin here, no sirree. Mmm, mmm.

Food. Food is an integral part of every society, because everyone needs to eat to survive. Even in fantasy and science fiction. It doesn’t matter if they are vampires who eat only blood (it’s still eating and consuming nutrients!) or aliens who absorb what they need through their skin (it’s still eating and consuming nutrients!), everyone needs to eat.  Continue reading “Food: Sustenance for Body & Soul”
