[Still not apologizing for the puns]
I’ll admit that when I first came up with the setting topic for this month, I worried we wouldn’t see enough variety of posts. As ever, the combination of our regulars and some really stellar guest posts turned out a month of surprising breadth of topics, which actually shouldn’t have been surprising given the literally infinite forms a story’s setting can take. I hope that you’ll take the advice and experience you’ve read this month forward with you as you tackle your own setting challenges. Please join me in thanking our posters this month for such a great set of posts. Starting tomorrow, Jace will take us to the topic of building and maintaining momentum, which for this writer, hard at work on the first draft of his next novel, couldn’t come at a better time! Thanks for reading!
