(This book is part of Revising Your Novel: First Draft to Finished Draft)

Fix the setting and description problems holding your manuscript back!

A strong and well-described setting can draw readers right into your story, but a flat and bare world will make them leave it. Make sure your descriptions keep those readers hooked.

Janice Hardy takes you step-by-step through setting and description-related issues, such as weak world building, heavy infodumping, told prose, awkward stage direction, inconsistent tone and mood, and overwritten descriptions. She’ll show you how to analyze your draft, spot any problems or weak areas, and fix those problems.

With clear and easy-to-understand examples, Fixing Your Setting & Description Problems offers five self-guided workshops that target the common issues that make readers stop reading. It will help you:

  • Choose the right details to bring your setting and world to life
  • Craft strong descriptions without overwriting
  • Determine the right way to include information without infodumping
  • Create compelling emotional layers that reflect the tone and mood of your scenes
  • Fix awkward stage direction and unclear character actions

Fixing Setting & Description Problems starts every workshop with an analysis to pinpoint problem areas and offers multiple revision options in each area. You choose the options that best fit your writing process. Learn how to:

  • Develop a strong and effective revision plan
  • Analyze your manuscript to find its strengths and weaknesses
  • Spot common red-flag words for problem areas 
  • Determine the best way to revise 

Fixing Setting & Description Problems is an easy-to-follow guide to crafting immersive settings and worlds that draw readers into your story and keep them there.
