Sudden you have an idea for a story but you are clueless what do. Honey, let me help you.
First of all, find out what genre you are going to write. Fanasty, Dystopian, Romance, etc. This should be your foundation of worldbuilding. Here is the best definition of popular genres:
Fanasty: mythical creatures, a world based on realistic places, events, or people aka Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings
Dystopian: a society of poverty, oppression, or rebellion against the government aka Hunger Games or Divergent
Romance: The journey of two people fall in love
Science Fiction: an imaginable world with high tech and science, time travel aka The Giver and Doctor Who
Mystery: the process of a crime or question being solved
Thriller: high suspense story where is the story is continuously moving without the ruin of the ending
Horror: a story capacity that causes terror or fear. aka Dracula or Frankenstein
So now you have made a decision on what genre. We need to form a short synopsis. It doesn’t have to be long just that you have an understanding where your story stands.
The first two steps are done now what. So how much do you like lists? Because that is the last step. I decided to create a list so that this post will take thousands of years to read. I don’t use all of this when I world building but it helps if you hit a curb while writing.
