Friday Round-Up - #154
Historical fiction author, Jody Hedlund, at On The Path, gives practical advice on how to create the right amount of setting in our books.
Question for Readers: Do you enjoy a lot of scene setting or do you skim over descriptions?
Question for Writers: How do you achieve a balance between not enough and too much setting?
Listening to the Voices, gives some guidance on Forensic Science. There are also other posts listed on her sidebar dealing with this subject. If you write mysteries/suspense/historical suspense, this is a valuable resource.
Question for Readers: Do you enjoy books with lots of forensic information or does too much technical information put your brain on tilt?
Question for Writers: Do you put just enough detail in your manuscripts to get the point across or do you go indepth?
Have a fabulous weekend!
