Describing your settings

This plan encourages you to think descriptively about the settings of your story, preparing some prose that you might use in your book, or to inspire your imagination as you write. You could use this plan to prepare a long description to use when the setting is first encountered, then a shorter line to give a brief sense of place when the character returns.
