CREATING WORLDS FROM WORDS

Dear Editor…

I feel like I’m caught in a catch-22. I’m writing a fantasy and I know I’m supposed to do world building. But what about the warning that people don’t like to read long descriptions? How do I build a world without boring readers with description?

Sincerely,
Stuck

If you’d like to know the answer to this question and many others, tune into Deborah Halverson’s deareditor.com. Deborah was an editor at Harcourt Children’s Books for ten years and now writes full-time, sometimes from her mobile office that gives her an eye on the world.
