DToT #32 – Another World Awaits You

This entry is part 35 of 48 in the series Derailed Trains of Thought

It’s time for another episode. We have a special interview this time as we discuss worldbuilding. Here’s the write-up:

Wardrobes, Deloreans, looking-glasses, ter’angreal, blue phone boxes, linking books…if you want to enter a new realm, there are ways. But, of course, someone has to make the world first. Hence, world-building.

We start this episode with an interview with Dr. Pamela Jordan-Long, Chair of the Department of Professional Writing at Taylor University and Director of the Center for the Study of C.S. Lewis and Friends. (How’s that for a title?) We talk secondary worlds, the act of creating a world beyond this one.

In the second half, Tim and Nick have a go at impromptu worldbuilding. So, if you ever have a longing for Faerie-land or perhaps a world reached by stepping just left of this one, listen in! We’re sure you’ll come back refreshed.
