Characters - Creating a Setting, Place or Home Library
It can be used as a visual tool or to make a website of your fictional settings, like I do in Squidoo.
I have so much fun creating a new home for Michael Ferraras in The Calamity Girl.
See this picture of a library?
I want you to come and sit down here, now tell me, what do you smell?
I smell, leather, paper, and my nose is being tickled by the dust.
I hear silence and it's marvelous.
The scraping of paper as I turn a page in a book.
You get the idea now of what it's like to be a character sitting in a library.
Describe what you are doing to your readers, so they can feel like they are sitting there reading a book with you.
