iUniverse Rising Star Author Lisa K. Drucker Part 4

In the fourth part of this book creation series iUniverse blog guest author, Rising Star Lisa K. Drucker, moves on to the next vital stage of the process- establishing a setting for your novel.

Creating a Book – Setting

“Credibility of setting is essential to writing a novel.

Write what you know.” We’ve all heard that, and it’s good advice. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to experience firsthand whatever it is that you’re writing about. It does mean that you should be thoroughly research and extensively think about your topic and content. This is truer of setting than any other aspect of writing.

Setting will not ring true if improperly described, which means you have to “know” the setting through experience or research. Readers want to feel as if they’re “there”—wherever “there” is in your story—and it’s your job as the writer to make them feel that way. You can’t do that unless you can authentically replicate in words everything that is essential about the place and time you are describing.
