Writing, The Place

Just a quick word on writing this morning, about setting. Setting in a story can be more than a backdrop. It can be a means of moving the story along. An event, or memory connected with a place the character either has been, is currently, or going to, can give your story interest.

It can be a means of revealing, a goal, or a reward. Place like any tool, can be overused, but used well it’s a skilled way of telling your story. You want the location in your story, to cause the reader to find the perfect place, to read more.
