if you see the confidence of a sitting cat you will be surprised with what you see She is like a statue to me. The fixed eyes and the fed body is still the one I don’ know

The mist was swirling and you could hardly see a tree in front of you. The trees were abundant in this area of the woods and there were animals everywhere.

setting is where something happens, the stage upon which your characters move, upon which their lives are played out. all the world’s a stage, a stage of life, part of a lifecycle that keeps going round and around, never ending, always moving on to not a conclusion.

her er jeg inne i en ramme som setter meg på plass. ingen vei å gå akurat nå. det er bare firkantet. i hjørnene kan jeg sette meg ned og ta en pause mens jeg undrer på hvordan jeg kommer meg ut. av rammen.

det har vi jo alt skrevet om. jeg vil ikke skrive på engelsk denne gangen. i denne settingen har vi bare norsk. det er grensen jeg vil overholde for denne gangen. aldri bryte og alltid holde. should i write in english? it is not my mother tongue

the backdrop of a story it
the stage it colors in the white space adds dimension and perspective
gives us something to concentrate and reflect on
when the plot gets boring

the place where we are located is the setting for our story, this in turn means that wherever we may be is where we will begin and end in that given setting. in conclusion we are here.

Places, people, faces. All an image of what “being” means. Nothing Stable all fragile and forgotten like crumple up leaves carried by the wind. i can’t wait for stable and nurturing arms.

Everywhere you go, there is a setting. Whether you acknowledge it is what determines your life. I like to forgo a setting and make one for my own entertainment. This takes imagination, but I have plenty of that to spare. Driving down a river road brings flashbacks to the 18th century where they would have walked relatively the same path. Furthermore, music warps us to the setting in which the song was released or it transports us to memories associated with the year the song became popular. For example, Earth, Wind & Fire’s electronic discography brings me back to the 80’s.

Setting. A setting is the place in which soming a occurs be it a story an action or an event. You could describe a setting, for example. Setting is also another word for letting something go solid or hard, for instance setting clay. My setting at this moment in time is a living room, it’s warm, softly lit and comfortable. Settings are all around us, all the time. They are what make life interesting and provide a backdrop for our lives.

The planet was a darksome shade of grey. The dust clinging to its surface was a sickly yellow that sat gloomily on the boots of the soldiers as they passed. One of them, a younger, inexperienced fellow, shuddered as he passed the boneyard. The others snickered at him.

in the right setting, one could write rather well…a nice glass of wine, dim lights, emotional music…ahhh i need to do this more often – always sets my mind free and makes for a peaceful nights sleep, if i could only remember how to write, dammit. hell, shit, fuck. blah.

Tempting, to say the least. Not that I was really tempted. But just the thought. The plate so delicate, so fine. I imagined the ground skeleton dust making the china. The etched glass, the swan-folded linen napkin. Monogrammed. And the juicy beef on the side board. The ripened fruit. The champaigne chilling; beading up in anticipation of ther first tingling sip. Yes,it was tempting, but there was no way in hell I was going to stay for dinner after what I’d done. What with the blood still fresh and running down the walls, it was best to just scrape by the body of the man I once loved, honored, and trusted with my life. I may have kicked his mistress in the face as I jumped over her prone form… I can’t quite remember. But, was she missing any teeth?

setting is a crucial element in writing. i know that. but what if the most familiar setting is also the setting you dislike most in the world? not because of its familiarity–you just don’t like it. what would you do?
By kaorita on 10.07.2011
setting things right? that sounds like something out of one of my stories, though. life isnt that simple. its complex and nothing is clearly defined. the best you can do is take it as it comes and go with it. improvise. because nothing is smooth and nothing is meant to work. we’re supposed to make our own way between the rocks and the ledge. see: choke – palahniuk.

the setting is a place, time, and theme of a novel for example the setting of harry potter is hogwarts, in the modern age. a larger setting would be London, or somewhere in europe.
By Maya McElwaine on 10.07.2011
the setting is the place you are it can lead the whole story. Whether it takes place in Memphis or Sydney. It can change the way one lives and it can be a really good way to figure out how to live your life
By Chase on 10.07.2011
The setting of the crime. Setting a table. Two totally different contexts for one word. English is a strange language. Today’s setting is a gloomy, overcast day. Wind whips through the trees.
By Kristin URL on 10.07.2011
I was setting the scene, a dark alley, a crimson lip and a soul that’s facade was as transparent as water. This was my life and my night. A treasure forever. Mouth to mine, hot and warm, c’mere baby. Let’s set the setting.

i am setting the stage for all that wish to follow
i promise my ideals are legitimate
i am setting up my future to be the best it can be
i am in a new setting
and with new settings come new, more, and different opportunities

The setting is important to any situation. Where you are can make any single moment incredibly romantic, or meaningful. The perfect setting, is well, perfect.

setting is the place in which things happen, where shakespeare writes the love story of romeo and juliet in the castles of montague and capulet, where you have to imagine what is around and surrounding in your head, to see where.

setting is a background to something, or can be used to adjust things on a pc. Setting.

Oh…I already wrote about this. Perhaps I’ll write something else? Meh. Setting is pretty. It is also scary and weird and awesome and cold and hot and…it’s just everything, okay? You either get it or you don’t. Sheesh.
By Emily URL on 10.07.2011
Setting. All I can think about is the floor where we watched a movie that is partly pertaining as to where our “relationship” goes. Well actually there is no relationship at all. Maybe I am just assuming. Or maybe He’s just too SWEET. After that movie we had a sincere talk about the guy that he thought I love. But I was just actually pertaining to him. So when he turned his back as if he’s not in the mood to listen anymore maybe because he’s sleepy, I cried. Then he started to hug me tight. Telling me to stop crying… because he’ll never leave my side. If only he knew that it was him. Maybe it’s less complicated. :(

I was setting, that’s what Dave used to call sitting–setting–in a chair at the movies with my children hoping that the movie would entertain us all, not just them or just me. And we lucked out. It was the best movie ever about dolphins playing baseball while rock climbing and running and eating chocolate and it was hilarious and beautiful.

Setting! Well, i do a hell lot settings. No, no! Not in setting up someone’s relations but in managing things :P

The setting of a story is what creates the atmosphere. It’s what tells us the type of story to expect, and puts us inthe correct frame of mind to accept what we’re about to be told. It helps us to understand what the author wants us to in order for their story to make sense.
By charlie on 10.07.2011
i’ve often focused on my setting and how it affects the work and thinking i do. music is often background of my setting, and in general, i relate strongly to the memories of every musical note my setting has brought. the sounds of a room, or an office, or a train – the smells around me at the time, the weather, whether it is drizzling or blazingly hot – all contribute to the setting.
By cdelbueno on 10.07.2011

set your history in stone like it is made from the sword. setting is what is around you and what you see everyday. What is your setting? Are you at home or playing or running errands all day? Your setting changes like the weather. Find a setting you enjoy and work until you can’t work “no mo’!” Set a path for yourself.

setting is the time and place for a happening, but then it can also be the preferences for a computer. Personally, I prefer the romanticism of the time an place!
Randomly, my father used to have a problem setting the timer on the VCR.

THe setting was freezing. Ice. Snow. Wet rain. All of it cold. It could not have been a more perfect environment for this fight between me and my boyfriend outside of our favorite, first date restaurant where I thought he would propose.

The setting just wasn’t right… the moment was ready I perceived but the setting, damn that setting. Both at a bar with friends on a normal Sunday night, I’ve dreamed this differently like maybe at a coffee shop or walking out of the DMV, I don’t know. I guess paticularness was never apart of destiny. It’s been years since we’ve spoken and after we promised to come together one day in a different time, place, where we could work I had pushed my thoughts about you aside for a better moment. But this setting, something was off. Taking my chances I trusted destiny yet again, and asked the waiter to deliver you this drink and scribbled a little message on a napkin for him too. I got up and made my way out, I turned around and saw him get it, a bit suprised you open the napkin read that “1034” and looked around. I turned away, hopefully for just a while and stepped into the night and faded away anticipating a better setting.
