Should I lay off and just invent the world as the game goes?

CommentHey Chris!
Congrats on so many episodes, and especially congrats on being part of this new wave of D&D streaming! All of you in the stream-o-sphere are really doing a lot to make D&D more accessible. WotC should put y’all on the payroll!
I’m a new DM, and I cannot help worldbuilding in between campaigns. Should I lay off and just invent the world as the game goes, or should I make a clearly fleshed-out world before I plop my players in there?
I would argue against building too much of the world up front. I’ve had better success starting small, and slowly building the world as the campaign marches on. from discussion Chris Perkins AMA.
