Although I totally worship authors such as Brandon Sanderson who span multitudes of books across a single visionary universe, I think that I would have a lot of trouble sticking to that format myself. I recently read Warbreaker and although I loved Elantris and the Mistborn series, I found myself wanting to delve deeper into the unique world of biochromatic magic. I found myself mentally begging for a prequel and a sequel.Hopefully I will get my wish! It’s an added kind of thrill knowing that all of these fantastic series ith such unique worlds are connected in the Sanderson multiverse.
When I write, I tend to go back and forth between urban fantasy and actual fantasy realms. It’s fun to think that the world in which we live contains magical and paranormal creatures, but it’s also so much fun to worldbuild! Right now I’m writing a book that takes place in a world that is sort of a spin-off of ours; a possibility. I’m enjoying living in that place right now.
So whatever book you’re reading or writing, or whatever world you’re currently living in, enjoy it and maybe we’ll cross paths somewhere in the plethora of universes floating around in our minds.
