I've been struggling with getting into the climactic action because I'm not sure yet of the setting. I think it's important for the setting to contribute to the scene. It's terrible and lazy when a writer resorts to having a conflict set in a deserted parking lot or back alley. How much better might those scenes be if they were set in more relevant locations? The scene for the climax in my novel is eluding me. I think it should echo the opening scenes, in order to bring the story full circle-- I like things tied up neat and tidy-- and since the story itself is coming full circle in this scene, it would be better if the setting was relevant. But where to set it? I think I'm struggling because in order to get the location, I have to think like the antagonist. Where, oh where, has my little baddie gone?
