Transcript of Setting (3A)
When and where a
story takes place
This setting is a "BACKDROP,"
because it could take place at any time or place, without changing the main storyline.
This type of setting has details, but they are not essential to the storyline. The story could occur at another place and time without a change to the story.
In this type of setting the story must occur at the specific time and place in order for the story to work.
Century, year, month, day,
hour, minute, second...
World, country, territory/
state, city, neighborhood,
street, house, room...
creates a mood or feeling
may impact characters' actions
the setting/environment can be
as important as a main character
This setting is "INTEGRAL", because it directly impacts the storyline.
This could take place
in New Jersey today
without changing the story.
This is on the day before the
attack on Pearl Harbor, in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Only as the story develops will we be able to tell:
how the ATMOSPHERE impacts the setting,
how CHARACTERS react to the setting, and
how, or if a CONFLICT arises from the setting.
Both postcards/stories were fabricated (made up) making them FICTIONAL in genre, however, the have different sub-generes.

The premise of this story is a believable one that is not set in a historic/significant time thus making it of the "REALISTIC" fiction sub-genre.
The premise of this story IS one that HAS historic/significance, thus making it of the "HISTORICAL" fiction sub-genre.
Now, you try!
The story of "Finding Nemo" takes place:
"The Pirates of the Caribbean" takes place:
"Wall-E" is intended to take place:
WHat's the P.O.V of these Postcards?
Finally, what type of
setting is it?
