In Chapter 10, we read about writing setting as a crucial element of a short story. A setting is important to the story. Once in college, I forgot to write a setting for a piece. Somebody pointed this out, and then said she was imagining it in a lab in outer space. Settings for my work vary, from a spaceship, to Earth in ancient times. Your story has to identify the time the story is set in, details about geographic, and more. Plot is defined as everything that happens to a character in this story, particularly the suffering they go through. My latest novella, The Land of True Blood, is about somebody going through hell, but winning in the end. This is the nature of fiction, although fiction is also about the protagonist working through conflict and the antagonist eventually getting beaten by the winner.
