Creating your own planet?

I usually write alternative History based on earth so this is all new to me. I wanted some help with creating your own planet. Not as in society and magic but more the physics side of it like what gases on the planet, terrain, moons, climate. I wasn't good at physics at school so could anyone suggest ways I can figure this stuff out. Any tutorials on planning this stuff? I haven't been able to find one that really covers what I'm looking for. I'm reading some articles now. But it's a bit over my head. Would it be better to just make it very similar to earth and just move on?

You must, must write about what you know. So if you can not create what you are trying to do on your own, then perhaps you should rethink what you can do.It does sound like it is something that is beyond your scope at the moment. Good luck

What are the best 10 books youve read?


The Last Unicorn - Peter S Beagle
Hear me out. I know this one sounds childish, but the way Beagle describes the settings and atmosphere in this book is honestly what makes it my favorite. It's almost like Tolkien decided to write a kid's book, or C.S. Lewis wanted to try something a bit different. The detail in each paragraph lends to great worldbuilding and characters. The plot can seem weak at times, but there's always a subtle wisdom that shines through.

Anthem - Ayn Rand
A young man invents electricity in a world where creativity and individualism is banned. Not to mention, the only Ayn Rand novel I can stomach.
The entire a-side of my favorite Rush album, 2112, is loosely based on this book.

Dracula - Bram Stoker
The vampire one, I don't think I even need to introduce it.
Be warned, the best action sequences of this one are in the first few chapters, it tends to slow down for a bit in the middle, but it picks itself up when it needs it.

The Lunar Chronicles - Marissa Meyer
I kind of cheated because this is a series, but imagine Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Snow White in the world of Star Wars. It sounded ridiculous to me until I gave it a shot, and it was well worth it. Fun characters, great action and pacing, well worth a read.

Ready Player One - Ernest Cline
The best way I can describe this one is a post-apocalyptic, Will Wonka-based love letter to the 80's. Really fun book if you're into anything 80's or video gaming.

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
A clever delve into classism and protocols of Edwardian England, with a romantic-based plot that I honestly get really into. I actually couldn't read past the first page of this when I was a kid, but now that I can actually understand the language of the time, it holds up great. That said, I can admit it's a bit more of a feminine book.

Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan
Greek mythology meets Harry Potter and it's pretty incredible. I'll openly admit that I'm including this one on the list out of pure nostalgia, but I find myself re-reading it pretty often.

Holes - Louis Sachar
Stanley Yelnats gets framed for stealing a famous basketball player's shoes, and goes to a reformatory camp for juvenile delinquents. The plot kicks off from there, and the subplot keeps up with it every step of the way. Not to mention, this has one of the closest book-to-movie adaptations I've ever seen (but I've got a soft spot for Sigourney Weaver).

Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea - Barbara Demick
This is definitely the darkest book on this list, seeing how it's a non-fiction book about North Korean defectors. I had to read this one for a history class, but about two chapters in, I was reading ahead of the class in my spare time. Imagine, if you will, reading Orwell's 1984, but knowing every word in it takes place in your reality. It's borderline horror, but an eye-opener all the same. Not for kids in the very least.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams
A hilarious space opera/buddy cop story, delightfully quirky. I'll admit, I've only read the first in the series, but I've got every intention to finish said series someday. The movie adaptation starring Martin Freeman also happens to be one of my favorite comedies.
