To continue with my last post about mind maps... The mind maps have illuminated a basic problem I have with writing: world building. In this last, I started a story that included magic but, after creating the mind map, it became clear that I had no very good idea about how magic worked in the world I was building nor the purpose of it to the story. To top it off, probably the story would work just as well without it. When that happens, why have magic at all?

What comes first, the character or the world or the story? Right now I feel all three are flawed.
