The Writers Circle: Writing on Location

One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other.  Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.

This week’s topic is:

Have you ever needed a change of scene in order to write a scene in your story? Have you needed to go to a place that resembles the one you are writing about? How does your physical location impact the story you’re writing? Does being in a location similar to the one depicted in your story help (or hurt) your storytelling in any way?

Let’s discuss this in the comments and see what our community thinks.

  1. Interesting. I suppose if you are writing about something/somewhere you haven’t experienced then you could try. Like an artist who goes to sketch a location. Looking forwards to seeing the responses you receive. Great post ideas
    All the best. Kris.

  2. It depends what level of detail I am trying to impart. If it could be any tall mountain, I don’t need to see it. However if I need to take a mountain climber up the mountain, then I might need to actually visit the place or at least see pictures or movies about it.
