Writing Excuses 7.3: Fauna and Flora

Writing Excuses 7.3: Fauna and Flora

From http://www.writingexcuses.com/2012/01/15/writing-excuses-7-3-fauna-and-flora/

Key Points: If it's the right kind of story, do what's awesome and don't worry about what's scientific or realistic. But do think about whether there's some way this could evolve. Think about what would happen. Balance empathy, awesome, and all. Consider hanging a lantern on it! Don't forget the story!

[Brandon] We could. Let's do that. Writing prompt. Excellent writing prompt, Mary. Let's send people... We're going to pick one region. Just do some world building on your own. Focus on the flora and fauna. Less on the sentient life. But include it. But look at the base plants and the base animals that would exist in this ecological region, in our weird world here.
[Mary] Since this is a shared world, go ahead and post it in the comments.
