World Building: The Positives and Negatives of creating my own magic filled world

The positive side of creating my own magic filled world definitely outweighs the negative side. One of my favorite things about writing paranormal romance is that you have the opportunity to create the world that your characters live in. As an author, this can be a lot of fun. To date, most of the books I’ve published are contemporary romances. I have several books planned for the future and the majority of them are paranormal romances. I like to research mythology and lore for a good starting point to expand from. Writing a paranormal romance provides more flexibility than writing contemporary romance. An author can really stretch the limits of their imagination. I think it gives the author more of an opportunity to pull the reader in when they can create a new, compelling world.

The negative side is trying to stay in the parameters of keeping it believable, while still creating the world that you want to create. As with all other aspects of writing, it is impossible to please everyone. What one reader will love, another with loathe. It can be challenging to press the limits of your readers’ imaginations while staying within the confines of what they consider to be believable and acceptable.
