Element two is setting, which is what the picture above mentions. If characters are the who then this is the what and when. Setting is always more than just a location, but the time of events as well. Is it morning, noon, or night? Are they in a city or the country? Even a character’s background has to touch on setting to give them depth. For example, what kind of place did they come from? None of those are the questions from this post, so here we go:
- What is your favorite setting to write/read?
- Do you think setting should evolve like characters?
- What is one piece of advice you would give to a new writer about setting?
