Hope you find the following useful. The following list is a guide to checking if your created world makes sense to a reader.
- Can a reader picture your world in their imagination?
- Can a reader identify with your characters? They don't have to like them though!
- Does your world have a system of government that makes sense to your reader? Someone has to be in charge. Your characters should know who they would be answerable to!
- How do your characters survive on a daily basis? They will have to eat, drink, breath, excrete, reproduce, and die (unless they're immortals of course but could anything threaten that?).
By ensuring you can answer these points, you will have a functioning created world of your own.
