Every time I read this term in writing fiction for dummies I can’t help but think of children’s books. “Story world,” it sounds like a term you’d hear in a children’s book, doesn’t it? Or perhaps that’s just me.
As I begin to tear apart Jenny Mac I keep thinking of this term. In Jenny Mac’s world I have yet to successfully mix the WIA world in with reality. The WIA as most of you know, is a secret society that has to blend in with the rest of our actual society, if that makes any sense. So far I’ve mixed these world half-assed and I’ve also introduced them in a half-assed way, but this time I’d like to successfully combine these worlds and clarify the importance of WIA’s part in Jenny Mac’s life as well as the rest of society.
Although I haven’t exactly figured that out yet. I think the way I am going to go about building up Jenny’s story world is to write longhand about what exactly the WIA is, what they represent, their goals, way of life, the way they operate, and etc… blah, blah you guys get the point.
However I’m wondering if it would be best to do character bios first; perhaps then I’d have a better idea of how I want to build up Jenny’s story world. I keep the thinking of J.K. Rowling’s story world with Harry Potter and the way she had to mix Harry’s magical world in with the muggle world. I’ve also been thinking about J.R.R Tolken’s story world with Lord of the Rings and his whole middle earth concept; because I’d really like to show the WIA world in their habitat.
If anything this should be a fun puzzle to solve and piece together.
