Setting is important to writers. The setting is how something looks, how it can be described, what it symbolizes or contributes. Like my wardrobe. When I am reading or writing a mystery or a spy story, I find myself dressing as I would expect those protagonists to dress. Leather knee high boots, black tees, and dark sunglasses. For fantasy or fairytales, I begin wearing flowing tops, with earthy colors and patterns, and Robin Hood like boots. For super heroes (the most worn outfits in my wardrobe) a tee with the Kryptonian symbol of hope (if you don’t know, that’s what Superman’s ‘S’ really is), or a tee boldly emblazed with the Marvel logo. With each outfit change, I take on the identity of a different one of my characters. So yesterday when I went shopping at a thrift store, with a coupon, it was like I bought three more characters. I need a bigger closet.
