So, I was workshopping this with the @ForumStaff, but I think I should open it up to the rest of the Forums.
I am creating a workbook on worldbuilding! This is the first in a series of workbooks I’m going to be creating to help everyone! It’s going to be at least 50 pages long. At the moment, I haven’t even done half and it’s already over 30 pages, so it’s probably going to be more than that.
I’d love to know how much you’re willing to pay for a workbook like this! It will be on my website and you can print it out as many times as you need. There will also be a dyslexia-friendly version. Here are some images for you to see what it looks like at the moment!
So, how much would you be willing to pay for a 50+ page workbook like this?
Here’s a better look at the contents page
It would mostly depend on how much new information it would offer to me.
Workbooks like that cost around 15€ most of the time here, so I guess that would be a fair price?
woah that looks awesome, Shannii! I’m not too good with this, but maybe 15-20 dollars?
You think so? I thought originally that it would be about 5-6 pages, but the more I wrote, the longer it became! I’m so excited for it to be huuge
I think I would agree with Hanna.
omg yesss i love how many chapters there are! they all look really good!!
yessssss!!! I do think so! and yes i also agree with Hanna
15 is a great price, because it means that by selling 20 a month, we pay for the Forums AND give me an extra 20
There’s gonna be 5 for story writing in total, so maybe I could bundle a deal for 50
omg yesss! that would be awesome!!
and bundle deals are awesome, people could buy them to share with friends / gifts!
maybe have some activities that could help inspire people and come up with ideas? add some examples, if needed have some extra questions to boost the ideas.
now if I would use it.:
i mean maybe, but i find that planning can take the fun out of things. Maybe plan like ‘oh i want this ending and this beginning’ and mabe how i want to get ot there but writing is fun to me cause its all from my tiny head and it comes to me as i write then its gets good. i enjoy the moment and add things off the top of my head, maybe jot down future events. so maybe i would use this, but not alot
Maybe if you get enough money from online you should maybe try making and selling book copies. Just an idea though, I dunno how it would work out.
Yess! It’s gonna be on
- World building
- Diversity and Inclusion
- Magic Systems
Then there’s gonna be another 2:
- Mary-Sue Buster
- Writing a Series
Maybe it could be like Choose Your Own Bundle for 50
I’d love to do that! Even if it’s just like a spiral-bound version that I can bind myself, rather than a paperback or hardback version
YESSSSSSSSSSS DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
Those sound like really important topics, good choices!!!
OMG YES- I love the idea of choosing your own bundleee
Yeah! And if we managed to sell 100 per month (really big stretch, though), I could realistically drop 2 jobs and still keep the Forums open
nope 2 big. im aiming for at least 2, maybe 5 the first month. then it gets more popular and u get a bit more. this cant be per month for the rest of our life unless each book is different, ooo maybe u publish it
The good thing about books like this is that they’re evergreen. Yeah there are 7 different books, but there’s no reason why someone won’t find the same book next year and buy it
