You can't do any of it on your own.
So you think I can't do any of it alone/I should look for other people to help me? This is confusing and I just want to clarify.

I actually might start with world building. Your world will influence your characters greatly. Your world will influence the types of plots that are even possible.
Exactly my thoughts when I started with world-building for my story. I thought that it might help steer the direction of the plot as well.

No, really! When I say anyone can do it, then I really mean that this is just a matter of spending enough time completely unrelated to one's skill. Literally.
Takes patience and mastery of the wriggly line. If I am able to make a map, I'll let you know. ^^ Thank you for all the advice!
