All right. I'm going to pretend for a little while that I don't have characters or a plot and focus on world building for a bit. Maybe that will help give me a basis for the story.

Yep.

I just find world building frustrating. I know this is a bad trait in a fantasy writer.

What about it is frustrating? I always try to keep in mind that you don't have to invent everything at once.

It's trying to make everything come together, make it all make sense together. It's easy to come up with ideas, but ideas that go together are difficult. Also, ideas that aren't the same as every other idea that's ever been.

Really? It's my favorite part. You get to make all the decisions, manipulate the course of history, determine the rise and fall of empires, knit the very fabric of reality as you will, command the destinity of all things with the awesome power that only a god or author can wield -- my god, the power, it fills me! It's the only time I feel ALI~VE!

Ahem. Sorry about that.
