So, how exactly should writers go about building worlds in their fiction?
Anytown USA My god. Read some Issac Asimov. I haven't any particular works to point out, but I know he's a particularly imaginative character when it comes to naming planets. I mean, I don't know if you've already read, but there you go. Anyway, my idea would be to break down a language and use it's parts to construct a new word.
The planet's style will depend on the language employed. Of course Asimov farts in my face by simply naming a clouded planet "There it is" or something like that.
So I guess the lesson here is to name a planet how your group of characters would name a planet. Try to put yourself in the shoes of the people who created its name.
And remember, like Satan, planets have many names. Lifeforms are environmentally dependent, so, for example, on the moon a creature the size and weight of a man can fly using short wings.
I've always been fascinated by that, men flying under their own power. Would be possible in that gravity. Other considerations are the thickness of the atmosphere.
It's solar cycle, and whether it's a binary or trinity cluster. Space junk, other planets. I remember vividly a short story from the Homeworld computer game. It was very unique in describing the people of the planet.
A religious uprising started after tensions from war. They built rockets for the very first time and wanted to go into space. A zealot actually burned himself under the first rocket. Anyway a satellite is knocked off course and starts taking images of this particular planet, and they find some huge metal carcass of something in what was their version of ancient Mesopotamia.
It's a space ship. I've been fascinated for some time by Lexx's interpretation of the planets Fire and Water. They orbit so close you can ride a balloon into the other planet.
One is burned by the sun while the other is shaded and full of life. They go even deeper than that. Watch the episode if you want, it's got the creepy actor with the white spikey hair and the Hannibal Lecter voice, but it's not the guy who plays Hannibal Lecter, just the voice, really.
Think outside the box. What about a planet that phases through time and only exists as visible energy? What about a planet where birds can glide without flapping, and are propelled through the thick air like squids?
What about a planet where dogs flew spaceships, Aztecs invented the vacation, and their forefathers took drugs?The Unknown Pen. 7, likes · 2 talking about this. TUP is a platform for sharing the work of true artists from around the world.
