World Building is a special genre added to Gay Authors to group together the various elements that an author must develop for a speculative fiction story that occurs outside of our own experiences. The further outside the more that needs to be developed. However, modern audiences do not generally tolerate large amounts of exposition (Show, Don't Tell!). World Building genre is where you can post the various parts and pieces that aren't full on story, but fill your world for those that just want to know more but would slow down your story or be a cheesy infodump. You should NOT tag fiction stories with World Building genre. These tags are meant for story information and fragments in World Building category.
