Bite Size Writing Tips

Choosing a setting for your story:

The setting in a fiction story can help to shape the mood of the story. A story set in an abandoned warehouse immediately evokes a sense of eeriness and isolation, of neglect and dreariness.

Make sure you choose a setting which suits the type of story you’re writing. Different settings create different atmospheres. In a ghost story, you want the atmosphere to be creepy and one of trepidation. An ideal setting is an old theatre or graveyard. A setting on a crowded beach in Malaga induces a very different atmosphere.

  3. Mine is set in the new forest, some on an abandoned farm.. problem is I know little about the new forest.. I might have to move her to Kent, but that’s a little close to home.. or just make up a town… it’s something i still need to work out.
