More On Settings

Fiction: More on settings
Collect settings.
Create a "Settings" section of your journal. Pretend you’re a location scout for a movie. For the next two weeks, wherever you go, write a short entry in your journal describing the key points of your location.
A "location" can be anywhere. Your workplace, a restaurant, the mall--- anywhere and everywhere you go. If you get into the habit of recording locations, it will become second nature to you, and you'll find all your writing easier, because you've become more observant.
