The Rural Setting Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Personal and Natural Places Image

“Within the pages of a book exists a world drawn from a writer’s deepest imaginings, one that has the ability to pull readers in on a visceral level. But the audience’s fascination will only last if the writer can describe this vibrant realm and its inhabitants well. The setting achieves this by offering readers a unique sensory experience. So much more than stage dressing, the setting can build mood, convey meaning through symbolism, drive the plot by creating challenges that force the hero to fight for what he wants, and trigger his emotions to reveal his most intimate feelings, fears, and desires. 

USE DESCRIPTION TO PLACE READERS AT THE HEART OF EVERY SCENE

Inside this volume you will find: 
•A list of the sights, smells, tastes, textures, and sounds for over 100 settings revolving around school, home, and nature
•Possible sources of conflict for each location to help you brainstorm ways to naturally complicate matters for your characters
•Advice on the many effective ways to build mood, helping you steer both the character’s and readers’ emotions in every scene
•Information on how the setting directly influences the plot by acting as a tuning fork for what a character needs most and by testing his dedication to his goals 
•A tutorial on figurative language and how different descriptive techniques can bring settings alive for readers while conveying a symbolic message or deeper meaning
•A review of the challenges that arise when writing description, as well as special considerations that apply specifically to rural and personal settings

The Rural Setting Thesaurus takes “show-don’t-tell” to new heights. It offers writers a roadmap to creating fresh setting imagery that impacts the story on multiple levels and keeps readers engaged from the first page to the last.

Readers' opinions about The Rural Setting Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Personal and Natural Places by Becca Puglisi & Angela Ackerman

The plot was incredibly well-crafted, with twists and turns that kept me hooked until the very last page. It was impossible to predict what would happen next.
