Build a Story World

 More Ways to Travel

Vehicle travel, water travel, animal travel. Begin to keep a resource journal, both for now and future novels. First write down each category of transportation. Then make a list under each with two columns: one fantastical and one reality.

Pick out a few from each category that fit your location. If your story is in a building such as the opera house like Phantom of the Opera, then you don’t need a large ship, but you do need a boat to navigate the underground canal.

Choose a movie in your genre category and mark down how each form of travel is navigated. How does that contribute or impede their abilities. For example in the movie John Carter of Mars, two races use air travel but one race refuses to fly. Make notes of the hindrances and look for ways they can become plot conflict in your version.

Share: What is the most fantastical on your list? What is the most practical for your world?
