Choosing the right setting for your book is important because it allows you to create the location or place where you want your book to happen. Understanding that your characters' need to be in the right setting can help you create a book that thrives and is popular with your readers.

One of the things I do when thinking about the setting for my book is that I research. Doing research can help you bring a little bit of realism to your fiction books. Sometimes I will include places like a hospital or airport so I do research to find out about these local establishments. It helps me get the right setting in mind when I write about them.

Why should choosing the right setting for your book is a good idea

As you are determining the right setting, there are a few questions that you need to ask yourself about your book. When thinking about these questions, make sure you can write down notes regarding what you come up with for the setting for your book. Let's get started…

  • Where do you want your book location to take place?
  • What local landmarks do you want to include?
  • Is the setting important to the flow of your book?
  • Do you need to create fictional landmarks?
  • How will the characters interact with the setting?

These are just a few questions to keep in mind when choosing the right setting for your book. I would love to hear what ideas you came up with for your idea setting for the setting of the book that you want to write. Please feel free to share your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
