Each story needs a setting. It anchors your reader to time and place, season, lighting and lets her keep her bearings.
Even if it only shows up in your notes there are some things to consider in your settings.
- Time and Place
- Temperature and Season
- Lighting, Sounds and Smells
- Symbols and Images
The following prompt or writing exercise includes a randomly generated time of day, location, weather and atmosphere. From the Webpage Create a Setting.
- It’s mid-morning.
- There’s bright sunshine.
- You’re in a forest.
- There’s a cold feel to the place.
Drop by the chat room on Sunday Evening and we will talk about Setting.
