My remit is to discuss with you the importance of “setting” in fiction so the first question must be, what is setting? Setting “When well executed description is unobtrusive and lends substance to a novel. It is the body fat of prose. Too much is unhealthy but without any you no longer have the thing—you have  its skeleton.”

Dr. Patrick Taylor
