Oh, am I EXCITED about my new Writers Helping Writers post. 😀
This week, as part of the site’s Resident Writing Coach Program, I share some insights about using real-world locations in our stories, either faithfully for historical or contemporary genres or as inspiration for fictional worlds. And since one of the reasons why I attended the Iceland Writers Retreat was to do hands-on research for my story’s setting, guess which country I used as an example? 😉
Click here to read “Using Real-World Locations to Ground Your Story’s Setting.” The post also includes a couple photos from my trip, as well as several setting-related facts you may or may not know about Iceland.
By the way, for some reason I thought “Using Real-World Settings…” wasn’t going live until next week. So imagine how silly I felt Tuesday morning when I opened my email and discovered I’d mixed up my dates.
As always feel free to share your comments at WHW or here at the blog. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂
