Within the pages of a book lives a place of a writer's imagining, one that has the ability to pull readers in on a visceral level. But the audience's emotional fascination will only last if the author is able to describe this vibrant world and its inhabitants well. The setting is the unique story element that brings together characters and events. So much more than stage dressing, the setting is able to evoke mood, provide unique challenges that force the hero to acknowledge his faults and fight for what he wants, and hold a mirror up to his emotions, peeling back the layers of his most intimate feelings, fears, and desires.

Ironically, many storytellers fail to maximize one of fiction's most powerful elements to achieve this: the setting.

Inside The Urban Thesaurus, you'll find: A list of the sights, smells, tastes, textures, and sounds for over 120 urban settings Possible sources of conflict for each location to help you brainstorm ways to naturally complicate matters for your characters Advice on how to make every piece of description count so you can maintain the right pace and keep readers engaged Tips on utilizing the five senses to encourage readers to more fully experience each moment by triggering their own emotional memories Information on how to use the setting to characterize a story's cast through personalization and emotional values while using emotional triggers to steer their decisions A review of specific challenges that arise when writing urban locations, along with common descriptive pitfalls that should be avoided Downloadable tools to help you plan each setting so you can choose the right one for a scene, providing the biggest storytelling punch The Urban Setting Thesaurus helps you tailor each setting to your characters while creating a realistic, textured world readers will long to return to, even after the book closes.
