Okay, so last week I talked about settings with you.
I promised to talk to you about my setting this week for "Swept to Sea".
Most of my novel takes place aboard Captain Caspian Archer's ship, Dawn's Mist. His ship is a square-rigged galley that is used for privateering. It can sail relatively fast for a ship of its size.
Dawn's Mist is one of Caspian's most prized possessions.
It affects the story in multiple ways. For one, it forces Caspian and Eden in a small space together during their voyage to the Caribbean. Eden always runs from any trouble she faces, but she cannot exactly do that on a ship when she is confined to such a small space. It also plays a huge part in a lot of the action in my storyline.
At the beginning of my novel, when I'm in Eden's point of view, I describe Caspian's ship darkly, because she is frightened by it.
However, at the beginning through Caspian's point of view, I describe his ship pleasantly, because he adores sailing.
You see how the setting affects the story? Do you think this sounds like an interesting setting?
