The setting of your story needs to connect or relate to your story. It’s so important to the story, that your story can’t take place without it. The details in your setting help the story come alive for your reader. It transports them there. Even with the same characters, a different setting creates a different story. 

A good tool for establishing a believable setting is using sensory language to describe it. The more viscerally your reader can experience your setting, the more your reader feels a part of it, and thus, a part of your story.
