It's a nightmare.
Your world is forged and designed, documented and mapped. You have characters and histories and mysteries and ecologies. Everything's perfect, right? It's time to write, and . . .
. . . what are you going to write about? Wait a second, you've got a world, but where the heck's the story? It was there when you started this . . .
Or, you have your world, and you've written a story and . . . the well is dry. You know your world, but there aren't any tales to tell! What happened?
A strange paradox
