A Good Setting
April 29, 2010 § 11 Comments
I love how a setting can influence the tone a story. I am fortunate to have traveled a great deal and seen a lot of the world. Wherever I went and whatever baggage I brought, my mood seemed to change when I get off the airplane and my feet touch the ground. The environment, weather, and people around me flavored how I tasted this new world.
Recently, I submitted a short story. The setting was so present in my thoughts that when I went down a road I’d never been on before and literally drove by the scene, I had to turn around and take a picture. Isn’t that beautiful? It was set in the evening and more mysterious, but you get the general idea.
I know my posts have been short and practically non-existent lately, but I’ll soon be finished with my second round of edits for the local SCBWI workshop in June. Those pages have to be sent off on May 3rd. Watch out May 4th, I’LL BLOG YOUR FACE OFF.
Have you ever been to a new place and felt different? Have you ever blogged anyone’s face off? This is a sharing blog, a safe place, go to your happy spot. Your happy spot would be an interesting setting…
