I was asked to build yet another world, as well as create a Bible/Reference for it. My reputation in this realm seems to be growing apace, much quicker than my reputation as a writer. This is a good thing. I enjoy world building, often moreso than actual story writing. I wonder, however, what is the market profitability of such an “abstract” role?
“What do you do for a living?”
“Oh, I come up with fake worlds for writers to play in.”
It just seems almost fradulent.
