A Lesson by Ryan Henderson

This lesson will be on how to describe the setting adequately in your book!


Alright folks, almost done! Next up we have setting. In other words: The place(s) that your book will take place. It is ideal to have more than one setting so the book is not repetitive. One thing I cannot stress enough in describing setting: DESCRIBE IT! Always go into detail on things! Not TOO much detail, however, as this will deflect and dilute the reader's attention. Describe how the setting looks, the atmosphere in the setting, the mood, the colour, etc.

Tips for making a lively setting: Go through the five senses! Use them as a checklist to make sure that you are adequately describing the setting, and adequately conveying the scenery of the setting.

I will review your work if you send me a read request, I like to help writers get off of the ground, I will also suggest ideas for your work if needed. Please note that I don't really like poetry...
