Bad news: I am behind on my Lazy 28 challenge.
Good news: I'm not as behind as it looks like from my journal.
This is because I have occasionally been doing several hours of world-building work for the challenge instead of producing a chunk of writing that I can post here. I don't see this as a cop-out, because world building is one the most challenging aspects of creating fiction for me right now, and one in the most need of attention. If I have the idea of a scene in my mind, I can actually make myself sit down and type it out (I do have some angst about my writing right now, but I think I'm working through it). Inventing characters and developing their dynamics/arcs is becoming almost second-nature to me. But plots are hard, and world building is super hard.
That said, I did not make world-building easy for myself. Instead of focusing on developing one alternate world I insist on building three or four separate ones. My dislike for anything approaching realism (including alternate-world realism) doesn't really help either.
So I'm working on fleshing out my worlds, and that is good. I even found a helpful list of world-building questions
that I can use as jumping off points. They're not all relevant questions, but even in those cases it can be helpful to articulate to myself why
a given question is not relevant.
