[FONT=&quot]If you're a writer of science fiction and/or fantasy, I'm sure you've experienced this dilemma. A mountain of really cool ideas are sitting in your head, waiting for their opportunity to be brought into existence. But, when you sit down and try to compile the list of seemingly endless variables, you find yourself unsure if it'll all fit together. Ugh.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]To be the creator of an entire fictional universe is not an easy task, yet here we are, notes in hand, trying our best to mash it all into one cohesive story-line. I wish I could tell you there's an easy way to do this, but I can't. There is no easy way to world-build. It's way more likely than not, you're going to hit a stumbling block or two trying to make it all work as one. Luckily for us, there are some 'best practices' you can employ to minimize those blockades.[/FONT]
