  1. the setting for this play today is the setting that was set about when we were originally setting up this set in place. The setting is set deep in the original setting showing that the set is best set in a setting set deep in the back of the set.

  2. In the back of the forrest, the leaves are turning around, setting the tone for a golden chill, hues of firey red and pumpkiney orange, sunny yellow to hint at the warm weather. We’re lighting bonfires and staying up later into the dark, kissing in the cold and laying down in the damp grass.

  3. I can’t normally think of a setting other than my hometown. I don’t want to offend people of the setting I choose, so I normally am very vague about this. This makes writing hard, and even more difficult when people say, “Hey! I like this! Where is the setting?”.

  4. Here in the library. All you hear is typing. Click Click Click. And paper’s suffling. Its almost fall break and everyone is finishing up some last minute business so we can actually enjoy our time off. They supposedly fixed the air in here but its still freezing. Guess I should put on my jacket. I wish andrew would text me. I didn’t stay on topic.

  6. Setting is a place you’ve visited, a place where you are, a place you would like to be. Setting is whatever, wherever, whenever you want it to be. Setting has no constraints. Setting is as big, a little, as vast, as confined as you like. It is everywhere.

  8. Setting may refer to:
    A location (geography) where something is set
    Set construction in theatrical scenery
    Setting (fiction) in fiction
    Setting up to fail a manipulative technique to engineer failure
    Stonesetting, in jewelry, when a diamond or gem is set into a frame or bed
    Campaign setting in role playing games
    In computers and electronics, the Computer configuration or options of the software or device
    Typesetting
    Set and setting, the context for psychedelic drug experiences
    Setting (knot), the tightening of a knot
    The terms location and place in geography are used to identify a point or an area on the Earth’s surface or elsewhere. The term ‘location’ generally implies a higher degree of can certainty than ‘place’ which often has an ambiguous boundary relying more on human/social attributes of place identity and sense of place than on geometry.
    Set construction is the process by which a set designer works in collaboration with the director of a production to create the set for a theatrical, film or television production. The set designer produces a scale model, scale drawings, paint elevations (a scale painting supplied to the scenic painter of each element that requires painting), and research about props, textures, and so on. Scale drawings typically include a groundplan, elevation, and section of the complete set, as well as more detailed drawings of individual scenic elements which, in theatrical productions, may be static, flown, or built onto scenery wagons. Models and paint elevations are frequently hand-produced, though in recent years, many designers and most commercial theatres have begun producing scale drawings with the aid of computer drafting programs such as AutoCAD or Vectorworks.
    In theater, the technical director or production manager is the person responsible for evaluating the finished designs and considering budget and time limitations. He or she engineers the scenery, has it redrafted for building, budgets time, crew and materials, and liaisons between the designer and the shop. Technical directors often have assistant technical directors whose duties can range from drafting to actually building scenery.
    A scene shop is often overseen by a shop foreman or master carpenter. This person assigns tasks, does direct supervision of carpenters, and deals with day-to-day matters such as absences, breaks, tool repair, etc. The staff of a scene shop is usually referred to as scenic carpenters, but within that there are many specialities such as plasterers, welders, and scenic stitchers. Scenic painting is a separate aspect of scenic construction, although the scenic painter usually answers to the technical director.
    There is also usually another person often referred to as a jack of all trades, or as a Fred-John. He or she doesn’t specialize in a particular aspect of construction, but is skilled to some degree in most.
    In fiction, setting includes the time, location, and everything in which a story takes place, and initiates the main backdrop and mood for a story. Setting has been referred to as story world or milieu to include a context (especially society) beyond the immediate surroundings of the story. Elements of setting may include culture, historical period, geography, and hour. Along with plot, character, theme, and style, setting is considered one of the fundamental components of fiction.
    Setting up to fail is a psychological manipulation performed on a target in which the target is given a task which is designed to fail as it has an unrealistic objective – “the setting of impossible objectives… set up to fail”. The target will become stressed trying to achieve the impossible, particularly if under pressure. Once the task attempt has failed, the outcome can then be used as ammunition to discredit and blame the target. A variation on this is that an otherwise achievable objective is covertly sabotaged and undermined to make it unachievable.
    The same result may result unintentionally by way of a “negative spiral of expectations… the ‘set-up-to-fail’ syndrome”.
    Stonesetting is the art of securely setting or attaching gemstones into jewelry. Stonesetting can also be used in referring to setting a stone or orb believed to have magical properties into a staff (stick).
    A campaign setting is usually a fictional world which serves as a setting for a role-playing game or wargame campaign. A campaign is a series of individual adventures, and a campaign setting is the world in which such adventures and campaigns take place. Usually a campaign setting is designed for a specific game (such as the Forgotten Realms setting for Dungeons & Dragons) or a specific genre of game (such as Medieval fantasy, or outer space/science fiction adventure). There are numerous campaign settings available both in print and online. In addition to published campaign settings available for purchase, many game masters create their own settings, often referred to as “homebrew” settings or worlds.
    Typesetting is the composition of text by means of types.
    Typesetting requires the prior process of designing a font and storing it in some manner. Typesetting is the retrieval of the stored letters (called sorts in mechanical systems and glyphs in digital systems) and the ordering of them according to a language’s orthography for visual display.
    Set and setting describes the context for psychoactive and particularly psychedelic drug experiences: one’s mindset and the setting in which the user has the experience. This is especially relevant for psychedelic or hallucinogenic experiences. The term was coined by Timothy Leary, and became widely accepted by researchers in psychedelic psychotherapy.
    ‘Set’ is the mental state a person brings to the experience, like thoughts, mood and expectations. ‘Setting’ is the physical and social environment. Social support networks have shown to be particularly important in the outcome of the psychedelic experience . They are able to control or guide the course of the experience, both consciously and subconsciously. Stress, fear, or a disagreeable environment, may result in an unpleasant experience (bad trip). Conversely, a relaxed, curious person in a warm, comfortable and safe place is more likely to have a pleasant experience.
    Of course, the drug dose does not produce the transcendent experience. It merely acts as a chemical key — it opens the mind, frees the nervous system of its ordinary patterns and structures. The nature of the experience depends almost entirely on set and setting. Set denotes the preparation of the individual, including his personality structure and his mood at the time. Setting is physical — the weather, the room’s atmosphere; social — feelings of persons present towards one another; and cultural — prevailing views as to what is real. It is for this reason that manuals or guide-books are necessary. Their purpose is to enable a person to understand the new realities of the expanded consciousness, to serve as road maps for new interior territories which modern science has made accessible
    —Timothy Leary, The Psychedelic Experience: A Manual Based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead
    In 1966, Timothy Leary conducted a series of experiments with Dimethyltryptamine with controlled set and setting. The aim was to see whether DMT (N,N-dimethyltryptamine), which had then been mostly thought of as a terror-inducing drug, could produce pleasant experiences under a supportive set and setting. It was found that it could.
    Set and setting has also been investigated from a religious perspective .
    Setting a knot is the process of tightening it. Improper setting can cause certain knots to underperform.

  9. The sun is setting. Marking the end of the day. Chilren laugh and play hard at the close of another day. The birds get their song out. The colors all melt together. Red, yellow, orange, purple, pink. It is so beautiful the end of the day, the promise of another day to come. The day’s winter, we await the morning ‘spring’. Days have their seasons, their turnings.

  11. The setting of the scene was awful; it was like Richard decided to copy an old Hollywood film for what it was worth, trash. She scorned his thinking process, really, because foam trees kept trying to press their branches into her eyes, and the scene was really deplorable.

  14. The setting around me at the moment is a trailer classroom in the beautiful city of Richmond. That setting was changed one day when yI went to school and hte trailer shook because of an earthquake. Students are busy doing work sheets or browsing the internet and others are even browsing for SAT help. The room is hot but the outside air is chilly. The students work feverely to be finished to have no homework over the weekend.

  15. The setting is perhaps the most important part of the story. For a romantic the setting mirrors the interior worlds of the characters. Another strategy is to have the setting diametrically opposed to the plot. Like real life–the amazingly beautiful day that was September 11, 2001.

  16. I was on a beach last summer and the sunset was just over the top of our penthouse. I was overwhelmed by the soothing sound of waves crashing the shoreline. It glowed with a burnt, warming orange color and literally put me to sleep.

  18. Setting is the time and place where a story happens. I was setting the table for my party. I was setting up the computer. The setting for Cinderella is in the past. I was setting up the desk.

  19. Time and place is valuable information to know. If a tsunami was about to hit in Hawaii on the 5th of March, I suppose someone mixing that date up with another would create a boy who cried wolf scenario, and then look at all the carnage that would create. Or perhaps they suggested the setting of this particular catastrophe to be somewhere else, and then you would see hordes of people stampeding from the beaches (which I suppose, if no one is harmed, would be quite the sight to see)

  20. Right now I am in a setting that’s pretty different than usual. I have to walk three blocks to do laundry, but the cheese and chocolate are delicious. I’m definitely going to like taking normal showers again, but it will be so hard to give up the people and the Church and the people here.
    And the cheese and the chocolate.

  22. Thje setting was exactly as I had imagined it. The lights were strung across the ceiling, little sparkles of blue that made me think of the night sky. Without those lights to guide me, I would be lost. The gossamer spread out on the wallks, floating down toward earth like parts of a comet long forgotten. My mind is fuzzy as I look through it. I don’t see you.

  25. It was the night before Christmas and all through my heart
    I felt the center of attention, a bulls eye, a dart
    You pinpointed my loneliness and planted a kiss on my head
    Daddy you made me feel better after all these tears I shed
    My first holiday alone since my husband had passed
    I’m sure this year would get better, this setting wont last

  28. of a story…the atmosphere thought of in the author’s mind. It can make the story so much more magical if the setting is descriptive. Magical as the story just comes alive and we find ourselves being sucked in…

  29. Maybe it has something to do with what’s going on. Or rather where it’s going on. Doesn’t matter how. And on second thought it doesn’t matter WHAT is going on. Place and time and when and where and this and that and it might make sense to someone. But not me.

  30. of nature, differente atmospheres that will enhance our mood, enhance the situation, and enhance the feelings beins shared by whoever is present. Turn it into a phrasal verb and you will be setting off to other geographical atmospheres, far away.

  31. a setting is where I am sitting. Sitting in my setting. A place to look around and to set my mind free. A setting is what you make it. What place are you sitting in to become your setting? Ready, SET, Go. It’s the 3 most simple tasks to get yourself anywhere. You make it what it is. You decide your setting and while sitting thinking about setting you can relax.

  34. The setting of the story took place in a far off land of lush forests and happy squirrels. They roamed the forests hunting for nuts and other animals to play with. I shouldn’t end a sentence with a preposition, should I?
