Getting Started









Setting is more than just a backdrop; it's the emotional and visual palette of your children's book. On Made Live, learn how each element, from time to location, crafts a uniquely engaging narrative.

Setting's Role in Storytelling

  • Settings are more than just backdrops; they're the palette that colors your narrative's emotions and events. Every detail, from time and location to atmosphere and mood, shapes readers' connection with your story. 
  • Creating Time and Place - When it comes to time, setting encompasses eras and moments that define your narrative's essence. Consider historical, contemporary, or fantastical times – each choice adds a layer of richness to your storytelling.  
  • Shaping Locations and Realms - Locations are your story's stages, where characters move, interact, and evolve. Whether it's a bustling city, a mysterious forest, or a magical kingdom, each setting evokes a unique sense of wonder.  
  • Shifts and Transitions - Though limited in children's picture books, setting shifts can still weave magic. From daytime to nighttime, indoors to outdoors, subtle changes can evoke different emotions and amplify your narrative's depth.

As you craft settings, consider how each detail contributes to the tapestry of your story, engaging readers' senses and igniting their immersion. You're not just describing places – you're inviting readers to step into your world. Every detail, every choice, becomes a doorway to adventure, discovery, and connection.
