Balancing plot and worldbuilding is a tricky business. You might want a world where magic is light and fun, but then want a plot about how magic is dangerous and needs to be hidden away. If that’s happened to you, then congratulations, you’re in good company. This week we’re talking about what happens when world and plot come into conflict. Not only will we mention high profile examples, we’ll describe how the problem could have been fixed, if only they would put us in charge of multi-million dollar franchises!
