Pondering world building

So, one of the comments the copy editor had was that she felt some terms I used lacked context. Which surprised me, since it was the first time I had gotten that comment ( though  Chrysoula wanted me to clarify some stuff.)

It did get me to think about world building. Or more specifically, my world building. I do write notes before I start a book, normally between 2000-3000 words.  Which is based on what I know *before* I write the book.  Except, I didn’t realise until now that I need to write notes after I finish the first draft too. *headdesk* Especially with such a complex Universe as the Portal Universe, were every book takes place in a different realm.

So, anyway, right now I am doing worldbuidling. Putting stuff that is in my head down on paper, and expanding the notes that I already have written. 🙂 Once that is done, I will begin revising Daughter of the Dark.  I am looking forward to it. A lot.
