The way we write is often more important than the subject we write about. It’s the words we choose, our unique expression, that makes what we do stand apart.
Where your story takes place may not change the plot in grand ways, but it will change the feel of your story.
While every writer has their own idiosyncrasies on how they approach writing, the formation and adherence to habits is necessary to actually get your stories written.
