Settings.

‘Settings’ means where a novel or a scene is set. A good way to come up with a setting is to use your imagination, I use mine all the time and I find it helps me come up with stuff and shit like that.

It is always a great idea to mention where your novel or scene is taking place i.e. its ‘setting’. If your novel is set in a jungle, be sure to mention it. Below is an example;

CHAPTER ONE

My name is Dawn and I live in a jungle.

You see how I have now set up a thrilling novel set in a jungle.
