I‘ve always been fascinated with world-building. I love creating new races, spaces, and history, filling the world with religion and culture, politics and magic, giving everyone a purpose and land to live in, making them interact, and creating a story from that. Thus, I have decided to take on a daunting task, which is to create a series of posts in which I describe my own method for creating a fantasy world.
There are many blog posts and books out there that deal with the same subject, but what will be different in this series of posts is that I will be building a new world with you as you go along reading each new post. I will have an ongoing document to add to our world all the elements presented in each post.
I don’t know where this will eventually take us; I hope somewhere really epic, so the index below is subject to change. I will turn the items into links as posts become available, and I will move them and edit them as I go along. If you want to follow this post, you can bookmark this introduction or subscribe to my feed to be notified when I add something new.
So, let us begin. Below is the outline of the posts to come. If you have any suggestions or things to add, things I missed, please mention them right now to account for them ahead of time.

All the best,
Hi there! I’m Iulian, and I want to thank you for reading my article. There’s a lot more if you stick around. I write about personal development, productivity, fiction writing, and more. Also, I’ve created Self-Growth Journey, a free program that helps you get unstuck and create the beautiful life you deserve. Enjoy!
