Writing Friday: Settings, Part Two

Hello everyone! How are you all doing?

A couple of weeks ago, I did a post about the main setting of my story, Swept to Sea.

Part of Swept to Sea also takes place in London, England.

Eden starts out in this story as a wealthy young lady, but her father's wealth is dwindling. This means that she must marry whomever her father chooses in order for them to continue living comfortably. When the man her father chooses turns abusive, Eden must find a way out. Her lifelong home in England becomes a danger to her. She must run from all she has ever known in order to find freedom.

So throughout Swept to Sea, the country that is only physically visited in the first couple of chapters plays a large role despite its small appearance.

England represents everything Eden wants to escape. In fact, she begs Caspian not to return her to England.

So, thanks for stopping by today! Join me next week for another discussion about writing.


  1. That's so interesting! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Very interesting, especially how a setting can be used even when your characters are not in it, in order to affect the characters and the story.


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you.
