Another Way To Set The Setting

It happened by accident. I was giving a friend a tour of the Miami area and realized that I had set up a pretty good scene of the city over a period of a few hours.

I drove through half a dozen communities describing some of the history, the hotspots, the not-so-hot spots, the ethnic diversity, the socio-economic makeup of different regions, etc…

I’ve struggled at times to describe the scenes in my novel, even though I’ve been to these places in real life. Now, I’m going to try by treating it like I’m a tour guide, and I’m taking you through this world. What are some of the techniques you use to set the scene?
