You know what is really cool about fiction books? (Well, I guess all books, but fiction in particular this is applicable)
One person has an idea in their head, and they begin to build an entire world around this idea. Sometimes it is extremely elaborate (I’m looking at you Tolkien, Mister, I can’t write my story until I have the entire linguistic history of its whole world….). Sometimes it is more thrown together, but either way, it comes from the mind of one person. Then, when it is shared, it grows exponentially as more people experience it.
Take the wizarding world created by J. K. Rowling. That started as a thought in her brain. And now? Now the entire world references it as if were real, all the while knowing it is just made up. We even have a theme park!!! This concept is crazy to me! That one human can think of an idea, and it can take off and explode into the minds of millions of others, and become a reality to them.
I love it so much.
I want my worlds to spread to others too. 😊
