Is the setting suited in the story?

Make sure that the place where your story or novel will take place is suited in your events. If possible you need to describe the place where the event of your story is happening. If your story lies in a modern world then try to add descriptions about technology and if your story is in an old place, describe your setting in a gloomy creaky place. You can include timelines in your story as well to describe or improve the setting of your story.
