      My 2nd practice novel...
      (Note:  there are no sexual, violent, nor vulgar themes or scenes in this story, but Wattpad says it is Mature, I suppose due to the presence of suicidality in some of the book?  Imho this is Women's Fiction, as it has a strong female protag. who saves herself and has a hopeful ending. -ShiraDest,

        I don't think I ever did give much backstory for any of my MCs.  As for clarifying the setting, I sat down to edit for setting, and realized that my problem with this practice novel is that it was written for one particular person, which is why I had so much trouble making the place definite at the start.  I also thought about Marie's entrance: I'd meant to convey that expected noises were identified, and thus less likely to set off panic.
