I suck at describing settings. I can do action sequences, describe characters, create decent dilogue, but for the life of me I cannot do setting. Actually, let me rephrase that, I have a hard time creating a vivid setting. The best I can come up with is something like "the barren desert" or "the green wet swamp". Is there a way where I can sort of personify the setting to make it almost like a character itself rather than adding a string of adjectives? I want to create something enthralling, not plain. Any tips or examples would be greatly appreciated.
