8 Tips for Describing a Story Setting
8 Tips for Describing a Story Setting
Anybody Can Write a Novel
Chapter 3 “World Building” – Section 3“Describing Settings”
With Links to Supplementary Material
Another tricky skill to master in writing is setting description. Setting description is often the first thing that a reader encounters in a story, making it an essential skill to perfect if you want to hook your readers. To make matters more complicated, it is often difficult to calculate the right amount of description in settings—too much or too little can either leave the reader bored, overwhelmed, or confused. Today, I'm going to talk about how to create engaging and appropriate scene descriptions that will best serve your story.
Tip 1: Start with the lighting.
As important as what we see in any setting, are the extent and medium by which we see it. T

Conference Calling
“I see you’ve been redecorating.”
“Bite me.” Remilia glowered across the table at their new guest. For her part, the gold and violet youkai didn’t seem put off in the slightest, her oriental fan moving idly as she took in the surroundings.
Given the somewhat…completely destroyed nature of the SDM’s usual reception areas, Remilia had needed a plan B. The good news was that she was quite accustomed to plan B. Unplanned demolitions WERE a regrettably common occurrence in her mansion’s history. The bad news was that while plan B involved much smaller rooms, and were usually very close to a door or window she could throw the hapless trespasser…sorry, ESTEEMED VISITOR out of as fast as possible, Yukari’s authoritative status (and the nightmare blue colossus that had parked on her front lawn half an hour ago) mea

“Bye bye miss Keine!”
Standing in the doorway of her classroom, Kamishirasawa Keine waved politely as the children from that day’s lesson trickled out, running off to play, meet their parents, and do whatever else the warm afternoon permitted. Some would obviously get up to mischief, after all, that was what children did best…but fortunately there were other people around to keep an eye on them if things got too out of hand.
Sometimes she did feel bad about having Mokou help out like that, but the phoenix hadreassured her many times about it, so she settled for simply being grateful.
With a sigh, she slid the door closed and shook her head, long, silver tresses falling to the middle of her back. If she remembered right, there were still some papers to mark, and then she could settle in for a nice, quiet evening o

Heyo, it'sa-me. S'been a while since I made a Journal Post about anything, huh?

Y'know, given how Status Updates are just more convenient... 8'D

Anyway, I'm writing this mostly to give an ACTUAL status update about my current state of affairs, since after the latest The Crossroad update I have left the progress bar at just 'Scripting in Progress'. Rest assured, I am still working on the story, however it has not been consistent due to certain events in real life I'm about to detail.

Firstly I've received my A-Level results about two weeks ago and I have been blessed with good results! :D Currently, I am still getting stuff ready for my University applications, and if I get accepted, I will be starting school again in August. Leaves me many months to myself, but I'll be entering a new stage of life, which is always kinda nerve-wracking.

Secondly, while I was waiting for those results, in order to occupy my time, I signed up as a volunteer at a daycare for Primary School students. Dealing with kids is kinda tough, but so far I've warmed up to them and things are going smoothly ^^ I've also been taking driving lessons on alternate days and several of my lessons have been filled with muttering about not ramming into motorcyclists, but otherwise, that's been going well too.

Thirdly, thanks to being egged on by certain people (YOU ALL KNOW WHO YOU ARE), I've been trying out Dungeon Fighter Online for the past few weeks too! Despite it being my first MMO and kinda confusing me at first, it's been super fun to play! ^^ So far I've made Alyss Baraen the Spitfire, a.k.a the class that was just designed for an explosives maniac like Alyss, and ARMEDMakoto the Asura.


I make no comments about his name 8'D

Either way it's basically been a blast just steamrolling enemies across all the dungeons and I've clocked a few hours in, though I'm trying to manage my time. Thank goodness for the fatigue system making sure you specifically don't ruin your life xD

...and yeah unfortunately this means I haven't made much progress with Cuphead. I'll get back to that suffering another time 8'D

For those of you who still remember, I also haven't made much progress on the preview for the Wadanohara video I've hinted at before, since that's still a side thing. But I will be sure to let you know how that goes.

So yeah, things have been kinda busy for me despite being off of school, but otherwise I am doing fine ^^ I apologize if I worried anyone with my silence sans any comic updates, since I keep most of my contacts private, but I assure you everything is well. The Crossroad shall continue when it's ready, and in the meantime I will still be as active as I have been.

God bless you all and have a great day ^^
So I decided to try out Cuphead for the first time today. After watching lots of Let's Plays and taking the advice of certain friends, I went ahead and bought a smoke bomb before I went for the first boss.

I died to that first boss 25 times.

And only AFTERWARDS, after I finally won, did I realize my smoke bomb was not equipped the entire time.

This bodes well for me 8'D
The Crossroad - Part 179
Makoto may be on the Edge of Madness, but that all the more gives our Red-Clad Bomber a reason to continue fighting. To bring back a lost confused soul, and to kick the living tar out of whoever messed his mind up!

What else can I say but this?

And one more accompanying meme I made, just because That escalated quickly.
The Crossroad - Part 178
And so it returns.

It seems Yukari knows of our not-so-mystery-now villain that is manipulating Makoto from the Shadows...Alyss for the record, doesn't. Yet. But all she knows is some thing has taken a hold of Makoto.

Something she must get rid of promptly.

Will she and the rest of our heroines find out what's really going on, and what to do?

The Yukari image was taken from here:

And of course, mad props to :iconthedarkbreaker: for drawing the two portraits of our sinister lady in the darkness 8D
Full size versions of the pictures can be found here:… and…
Apologies for the slow Crossroad updates despite my status. January's been kinda rough mentally. I'll be putting it on yellow status now due to some commitments I got before the Chinese New Year weekend.

^ Pretty much sums up what I do in a shellnut

I'm just another create.swf user. Most of the pics I make are made using that lovely program made by KirbyM. I like making thought-provoking and interesting stories to complement my comics. Oh, they might get religious at times, so please don't mind me! :D

Okay, Kigurou-Enkou.

I'll send you some spoilers on my comics in DA Notes next time. Though, it's going to be hard for me to send you stuff in DA Notes, considering the fact that I've never done it before. I probably need to know how to do that.

Anyway, thanks.

Hello, Kigurou-Enkou.

I want to apologize for two things. One is about using your OCs without your permission. Really sorry about that. Two is about being 9 days late for your birthday (I didn't forget at all; It was due to injuries that prevented me from using my computer). My apologies. I still wish you a happy birthday. Sweating a little... 

Needless to say, I still need to use your character, Alyss. For two more comics. One is where Alyss and Roahm are introduced to each other, and the other is similar to :iconkidowa:'s "While WIP Joke" comics. I hope it's alright with you.
Kigurou-Enkou Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2018  Student Writer
No problem, I hope you're alright now ^^

As for the comics, would it be alright if you send me a note sending me the comics first before you upload them?

Kigurou-Enkou Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2018  Student Writer time could you please send this in DA Notes rather than in my comments section? You do know if you post this here, other people can see it in public right? ^^;

I’ll send you my response in a note
