The setting of a story shows the reader where and when a story takes place. A setting can be a place (like a barn or a city), a time (like midnight or the Roaring 20's), or an event (like a county fair). In well-written stories, the setting is just as important as the characters or the plot...and writers should work hard to use sharp and descriptive details when building a setting on a piece of paper.
