“What made Tolkien’s Middle Earth so wonderful—what made it feel so rich and full—is the fact that it was informed by the things that Tolkien was passionate about. He was a linguist, he loved mythology and history. He was a geek for them, in the truest sense of the word. When you’re a geek for something, it means you love it beyond all sense. I always encourage people when they are attempting to do world-building to focus on their passions.”

~Patrick Rothfuss
