"The locale of your story is the picture frame within which you weave the action.” —William Noble Ever read a novel and years later be able to recall the feeling of place you got as the words flowed into your head? That’s what great writers, both fiction and nonfiction, can do. That’s what you can do. Make That Scene will show you how. Using scores of examples of great writing, longtime editor-author William Noble discusses the influence mood, setting, and atmosphere have on your characters; the mixing and matching of settings; setting as a plot limitation; and when the setting itself becomes a major character. Learn: • the value of an imperfect memory • how much research to conduct • how to use sensory images • how many details to include • how to use time, dialogue, and point of view to establish your setting • oodles more. Make That Scene is an essential guide to enriching your writing.
