SPA Girls Podcast – EP118 – How to Write a Successful Small Town Setting
Small town settings are a common backdrop in romance. Writers love them because they give us a landscape that we can go back to again and again, with familiar secondary characters that our readers will recognise and become attached to. Readers love them because once they’ve found a town with a cool cafe, a watering hole where all the locals hang out, and characters they can fall in love with – well, why would they want to leave?
Wendy and Cheryl both have successful series featuring a small town setting, so this week they both talk about how to create fictional small towns that your readers will love, with tips and tricks that will take your town from ordinary to exceptional. They tell us how they put together the small towns in their contemporary series’, why they did it a certain way, including best practices on how to create a memorable small town. It’s a fascinating insight into the creative process, and well worth a listen… 🙂
