World-building in the Real World: Strategies for Fictionalizing the World We Live In

World-building isn’t just for science-fiction and fantasy. It’s just as important for fiction set in our everyday world. I’ll discuss strategies and potential pitfalls when using the settings we know (or want to know) in our fiction.
