Introduction to Setting

Episode 009

Welcome back to The Writing Apothecary podcast and to a new month and a new topic. This month we’re looking at the backbone of a story.

This is a small introduction in to what to expect and how a setting can elevate a character and the story. Without it, you don’t have a story.

The major points are:

  • Stories draw on authentic settings on time and place.
  • Writers have the ability to choose to make up places, which works better for them.
  • Setting really is the foundation of a story.

We will be covering place and time, as well as looking deeper into setting and time and looking at pacing.

This wraps up our first lesson on setting. I hope you’re excited on what is to come.

Tell me what did you take away from this week’s lesson?

I’d love to know.

Also I would really appreciate if you took the time to rate and review the podcast it helps people find our community and gets the podcast out into the world a little more.
