    @ladyjoy  Why hello, fellow Joy!! 😉 Welcome to Story Embers! Do you have any tips for world-building? It’s one of my weak-points. ^.^

    Hi, nice to meet you! I love anything by Jill Williamson or Tricia Mingerink; they introduce me to the world of Christian fantasy and I have no regrets! I’m also a huge fan of Tamara Leigh (Christian medieval romance) and Susan May Warren (Christian contemporary romance)

    What are your favourite books?

    Hi! Always good to meet another Joy 😉

    Um, tips… First off, having visuals of your world is probably a good place to start. You can draw a map or generate one online, or make a Pinterest board with pictures relating to the world and its culture. Drawing from more than one culture, contemporary or historical, is also a good way to add diversity to your world. It’s a good idea too to keep a file on your phone or computer (or both!) for random facts about the world that pop up so that you can remember them for later.

    This is the first time anyone’s ever asked me for advice and I’m new to the whole fantasy writing world myself, so I hope this helps 😀

    @ladyjoy Ooo, I may have to check those authors out. :O As for me, my favorite authors are N. D. Wilson and Andrew Peterson. : ) Brilliant minds, they are! The Wingfeather Saga is an amazing Christian fantasy series written by Andrew Peterson, and they’re definitely some of my favorite books. I highly recommend. : D

    @ladyjoy *nods emphatically* What Grace said.

    Welcome, by the way! I write fantasy, too 🙂

    Hearts are like matter--they can be beaten down, torn, and burned, but they cannot be destroyed.

    @ladyjoy  That does help! I think I’ll start up a Pinterest board pretty soon. Thanks so much! 😀
