There has to be something unique about each setting that you choose. For a legal thriller, the courtroom scenes are easy, but there are so many other scenes that I was wasting good plot, narrative and dialogue on. Generic office scenes, restaurants etc., were bringing me down and weighing my writing down. A scene that once occurred in a law office that now takes place in the Superdome, French Quarter or an alligator infested bayou is so much more alive now.
The author also offers a variety of ways to incorporate sound, smell and the other senses into your setting. Ive learned new ways to enhance the settings in each scene.
Thank you. The author opened my eyes to all of the amazing possibilities that the appropriate setting offers a novel.
I wish the new review format allowed me to scroll back through my review prior to posting. I apologize for misspelled words, but I can't manage to go back and make corrections with the new Amazon Review Form
This book provides tons of information on how to incorporate the setting into the story, so that it becomes an integral part of the characters' experience.
This is a reference guide that any writer can turn to again and again, for various writing projects, and as the need arises.
A handy resource!
It's written in a very clear manner and eases any confusions.
I know a few aspiring writers who will be getting a copy for Christmas.
