Atmosphere

Hello! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. As always, my excuse is school. I’ve been virtually spending all my time working on it! Still, I have not abandoned my blog!

When writing your story, there are two things that go hand in hand: location and atmosphere. The location is where your story takes place, the atmosphere is the feeling you get from the location.

Say you’re writing a mystery. When your detective goes to meet someone in an alley, what feeling do you want the scene to elicit? If you want something happy to happen, you could choose a park on a sunny day or a beach at sunrise. With your detective going to an alley to meet an unknown person, perhaps an encounter in the dead of night with either fog or rain would be appropriate. This contributes to the creepy, mysterious atmosphere you are aiming for. Now add some rats, a flickering street lamp, and a few menacing shadows. Now you have the perfect atmosphere to a secret meeting for your detective to gain some vital or useless information. 😉

Working on it…
