Writers know it’s important to create complex, vivid characters that keep readers engaged. In this post, Kyle A. Massa from ProWritingAid shares how to make your novels’ settings equally compelling.
Character. Plot. Setting. Of those three, which do you enjoy writing the most?
For myself (and many writers I know), character or plot usually take the top spot. Setting usually doesn’t. Humans connect with other humans, after all, so it’s often easier to invest oneself in characters and their conflicts. A place, though still important, is a bit more difficult to connect with.
If you’re one of those writers who struggle with setting (I know I am), I’d like to share with you an approach that might help.
