I enjoy writing in the Fantasy genre and World Building is a part of that. It may or may not be extensive. For example, you can simplify your life considerably if you use our existing world and just add a bit of magic here and there. J.K. Rowling uses that technique to good effect in the Harry Potter series. The magic is carefully hidden so we muggles won’t detect it but the world itself is the one with which we are familiar. Using a parallel world or a down-the-rabbit-hole technique is another approach. A fantasy world still needs to be constructed but some or much of the plot can take place here. Creating an entirely new world can be challenging but it’s also fun.
