So, I’ve been reading Wing-Tsit Chan’s A Sourcebook in Chinese Philosophy and today I started John Stuart Mill’s On Liberty. Yay for research… you will find the strangest combination of things to be extremely helpful. Anyway, for today’s exercise I’m going to give you a picture and I want you to use it as inspiration to design one part of the world you’ve started. This could be fleshing out one of the nations that you’ve already come up with or it could be creating an all new nation or continent for your world – also, just a thought, in Kalagrosh, one of the worlds that I’ve included is a world in which sound doesn’t exist – you might try doing something like this. Create a world where things just work differently. The rules of physics are completely different, or something that we take completely for granted (like sound) is non-existent, and then figure out how the world works without it. Here’s your picture:

    1. Do you mean this plot challenge? There is no specific word count. The exercise is to design a setting based off of the picture that I provided, not to write a story.

        1. Saskia, I’m not sure that you understand. The purpose in this exercise is not to write a story, but instead to develop a setting. I want you to write a city, or location in a Science Fiction world that stories could later be set in, but I don’t want you to write a story itself.

          1. I have seen the picture and i read your story, and i go so up in the story that i wash rady and it wash away but the city i feel at that moment so and how happy you can be with the normal thing’s food , drink and a littel sleepinplace. I’am so sorry about that.
