Inspiration To Make It Easier
By: J Lenni Dorner
is for Location
Was the setting well done? Did the world-building feel real to you, did it come alive? Was it memorable? Did any real places have accurate descriptions, as far as you know?
Look at the picture at the top of this post. Do you feel cold? Can you picture seeing your breath while standing there? Can you hear the crunch as you walk? Do you smell how the air tastes fresher, cleaner? Are you thinking about tasting some snowflakes? Writers bring you that with words.
Considering the winter setting, what character do you think will be here? One trying to survive? An older character in the “winter” of their life? Someone pure as snow? The setting sometimes reveals more about the characters and story.
Some settings captivate you because you feel like they’re real places. Others make you feel like you’ve gone to a fictional world you wish was real. And sometimes the best part of a setting is that it feels accurate. Even if the setting just flowed with the story, not taking you out of it, that’s something worth noting.
