dear writers who struggle with settings:

i found a rlly cool website that may help you bring your settings to life

it’s called homestyler and it lets you design a home, inside and out, with customizable furnishings and coloration, down to tiny details in the decor.

you can use both 2D and 3D views to create your floor plans and adjust the placement of everything, and you can create multiple layers if your house has more than one floor

it’s totally free, you can save as many projects as you want, and it even creates high-res photos and panoramas for you so it feels like you’re really in the house

there are a few drawbacks, such as:

  • you can’t color the same wall a different color on each side; the color you pick for each wall applies to both sides of it.
  • it’s VERY touchy. sometimes it registers movement when you didn’t do anything, sometimes it refuses to register movement even tho youre flailing your mouse wildly. it’s often hard to select the right thing.
  • LOCK THE PLACEMENT OF YOUR ROOMS. if you don’t, the slightest twitch of your mouse could send them into a blender.
  • the “undo” stack only stores your last three actions, so in case of accidental bullshit, save often.

bUT YEAH if you have trouble maintaining a steady idea of the layout of your house, the coloration of things and placement of everything, just trouble in general bringing your setting to life, it could be really helpful to have this tool that allows you to build your settings!!

A Guide to Writing Catholic Schools 

Here is a little guide on using a Catholic school as a setting or some things to consider when writing a character who has attended Catholic school. I have gone to Catholic grade school for 5 years and am currently a freshman in a Catholic high school. Of course, everyone’s experience in school is different and I am in no means representing everyone who has ever attended Catholic school, but these are some things I have observed or learned through research

I hope this is helpful! Full guide below the cut.
