- Giving enough details to bring your world to life without swamping your story with too much information.
- Giving the right kind of details to bring your world to life. Right here is to show those details that back up your plot, show your characters to their best or worst (as appropriate) and without them, the story wouldn't be so strong.
- Remembering the telling little details - how do people in your world live? You don't necessarily need chapter and verse but enough to give sufficient idea so your readers can imagine your world successfully.
- Not falling in love with your world to such an extent you forget to tell the story or worse, bog it down.
- Making the details convincing.
