Hey guys, For all you fantasy and sci-fi writers out there - how long do you spend world building before you start writing? I'm currently starting a new project, which of course means loads of world building. I'm the kind of writer that needs to do at least SOME world building before I start writing, or my world comes out flat and dull. And while I love it, I'm starting to feel overwhelmed. There's just so much to think about! So how long do you guys think is necessary to spend on world building? What elements of world building do you think are essential to complete before you start writing? Do you have any tips to make the world building process less daunting? Thanks guys.
