This is the fifth in a series of interviews regarding “The Drifting Isle Chronicles” shared world project. In this interview, we meet another of the collaborating authors, MeiLin Miranda, who shares her thoughts on DRM, collaborative worldbuilding, and something called an “angler bug.”
A few days ago I stumbled on a promising new shared universe project being led by Joseph Robert Lewis, a prolific self-published author.
The project is called “The Drifting Isle Chronicles,” and while it’s technically not a shared story world (Joseph is working with a small group of authors and is not accepting outside submissions), I was taken with Joseph’s enthusiasm and just-do-it attitude about tackling the challenge of collaborative worldbuilding. Plus, many of the challenges of shared universes apply to shared story worlds.
