Episode 267 Stop Worldbuilding, Jeff is not a worldbuilder

Today's Topic Worldbuilder has lost its meaning.

Maybe I should stop looking through worldbuilding sites online. I see so many people get stuck on worldbuilding. More to the point, I see people who call themselves worldbuilders get stuck on what it means to make your world realistic.

I personally have had it. I cannot consider myself a worldbuilder any more. I create fictional fantasy settings. Join a shocked Michael as the talks to Jeff giving up on the worldbuilder moniker.

    I am glad you brought this up. For a while now, my perfectionism has been poked by the harsh critiques of these other forums.
