About This Class

In this class, you will be able to elaborate a profile for your own fictional planet based on the template I provide.

You will learn how to start creating the foundations of a constructed world of fantasy and science fiction. This is a useful creative exercise to learn how to begin building your own fictional world.

I will guide you through a process I developed myself and always use. I’ll show you the key points to create a planet profile that helps you to bring to life your stories.

This is an excellent project for beginners in the literary world, people that are making their first steps on writing fiction, but also for anyone who wants to get an insider’s view of this kind of projects.

Even if you don’t have a novel idea yet, you can still participate. Use other planets from fictional universes in existence, like: Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars, Star Trek, etc. The key here is that you improve your writing-planning skills practicing with this new framework I made, so when you finally have your idea you can start right away.

 Also, you can take my other class... Fictional Universe Storytelling: Outline Your Epic Adventure to learn more about fictional universes in literature.
