Creating A Setting

by Ann M Streetman on 03/15/18

A setting is important for you, the reader, and important for the characters. Let me explain. It’s my job to make you experience the environment where a piece of action takes place. More often than not, I let one of the characters tell you via his or her internal thoughts or through dialog with another character. If a character describes it, you are also getting insight into that character by the way he or she sees it. The description needs to be rich in detail and convey emotion that will arouse your interest and contribute to the story line. A good setting includes how the characters feel about their surroundings and how that environment contributes to their interactions at the time. Like life, writing is complicated, but oh so much fun.

Thanks. AS
