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?

I'm blessed. Most of my professional career, almost 20 years, I've spent as a journalist. Some of it was in print, a little in television, but most of it in radio. I've worked with some wonderfully talented producers and directors in those two decades. It would take pages to elaborate on all of the experiences I've had as a reporter, producer and host. Needless to say they include opportunities talking with leaders of state, religious leaders, civic leaders, writers, artists and entertainers. The last couple decades have been a lot of fun. But, the next couple decades will be far better.
