THE WORST PART ABOUT CONSTRUCTING YOUR OWN FICTIONAL UNIVERSE IS
"The thing with Maritza, I honestly feel like she’s just very much a part of me and I can get into her really quickly especially when you put that uniform on and you’re on set with all these girls who are in prison. I think your imagination gets you there really quickly. I actually get sad! There’s this feeling of being trapped that comes over you. With this job you have to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. That’s how I prepare, I just put myself in someone else’s shoes."
So, I did write a post about building nations and culture some time ago, but my plan has changed. Initially, I was going to write a series of articles about it, but I think, given that Tumblr doesn’t really have a ‘series link’ as such, I’ll compile it all into one.
In this article you’ll find advice on:
Building the Physical World
And I think that should cover everything you might need to build a convincing culture. Some of you might not want to use every step, some of you might. This is one of those things that people will always do differently; some people like to spend a lot of time figuring out a nation and its cultural associations, others like to glance over it and fill the rest in later. I land somewhere in the middle. Generally speaking, people who follow the former pattern have excellent internal logic (I’ll get to it, in one post or another) but can struggle when it comes to the writing part, because if something, somewhere, doesn’t quite work properly, it has a knock-on effect on every single detail they’ve crafted. The latter can sometimes lose out on internal logic, and therefore audience trust, but allow for more story flexibility.
I find the middle of the road to be the most effective. I give myself enough structure to be able to maintain a good level of internal logic (it can always be touched up in edits) whilst leaving enough out of it to enable flexibility. The thing is, unless you’re going to use it somewhere, extreme detail simply isn’t necessary. If you can establish that you know the culture well enough to be able to conjure out a logical step for it, then there’s really no need to mention every last year of its history. Equally, there’s always the Tell You Everything trap; the likelihood is, if you’ve worked that hard on it, you’re going to want to mention every last coup and every last battle. You’ll get bored readers. Fast.
That said, let’s get started.
