The group comes to you from their annual autumn retreat and swaps out Jessica with another member of the critique group. This time they’re twisting a little more into the idea of worldbuilding through the use of your character.

They discuss the learning curve of the POV character (newbie versus seasoned), visual aids, when and why to describe the world, and thinking about the soundtrack of the setting. Tracey and Anne chitchat about making conflict particular to your world, while their guest Troy puts up with an impromptu jingle.
