Secrets for Deepening Sense of Place
A strong sense of place invites readers into your creative world whether you’re writing a novel or sharing personal experiences in your memoir or nonfiction—and makes it difficult for them to leave! Whatever the genre, you can include specific details that invite readers more deeply into the world you’re recreating or to believe your fictional setting is a real and tangible place. You’ll discover several ideas for deepening your setting.
Award-winning author Johnnie Alexander imagines a variety of stories whether she’s at home in Oklahoma or on the road. Her second cozy mystery releases from Annie’s Fiction later this summer, and her historical novella will appear in The Erie Canal Brides Collection (releasing from Barbour Books in March 2019). Her WWII novel, Where Treasure Hides, is a CBA bestseller and has been translated into Dutch and Norwegian. Where She Belongs, her first contemporary romance, was a Library Journal Pick of the Month and Selah Award finalist.
She’s on the executive boards of Serious Writer, Inc. and the Mid-South Christian Writers Conference, co-hosts an online show called Writers Chat, and interviews inspirational authors for Novelists Unwind. Sharing her vagabond life are Griff, her happy-go-lucky collie, and Rugby, her raccoon-treeing papillon.
