If you're a fan, geek, otaku, what have you there's a good chance you're into SOMETHING that has a well defined world. It could be the World of Warcraft, it could be the Trekverse, Middle-Earth, what have you. You could have several properties you like.
You may even work on them. Perhaps you write fiction, make MMO's, etc. You may be crafting the setting for a multi-part RPG right now, or designing the starships for a futuristic combat game with a detailed timeline.
Worldbuilding is very important to us geeks, and even more important to the fictions and worlds we build.
Ever wonder why?
Almost anything we progeeks are into can be considered a form of publishing. Knowing this is important to our careers.
That may sound strange when your interest doesn't come out as a book or a magazine, so stick with me here as I take a look at just what publishing is.
