comment Deciding the setting: real or invented?
Thank you Mussri, this is a really well-thought answer, but I'd like to point out a couple of things: I'm writing crime fiction so I'll be sticking to the real world, no weird magic or effects. Not because I don't like it, and I thought of setting it in some parallel world, but I wanted to write crime fiction, like Murder, She Wrote, or Poirot, or you know what I mean by now. :D So "the world" thing is out of my thoughts now. My concern was the place. Maybe I could choose a real city and just put fictional buildings. I don't know yet...

John, I definitely liked what you said here: "You want to set atmosphere in your book, not a geographical map", but I need a clarification over something else. What did you mean by "Then pick the more frightening"? Didn't understand it.
