178 – Describing the Environment

The Mythcreant Podcast
A story’s environment is vitally important, but how do we describe it? Too little description and the reader feels like the story takes place in a blank white void. Too much description and the plot gets lost. Should you use unusual and distinctive words, or will they only confuse the reader? What about employing senses other than sight? We’ll cover all that and more, plus a little detour into the world of audio dramas.
