Actually I noticed that myself. I've been brainstorming my ideas, i've typed out ideas for my plot, as well as character description for the protagonist, antagonist , etc. When I was writing the setting I didn't go too much into it because I wanted to focus more on how I want my characters to be as well as how the story will flow. But, I am a perfectionist so luckily I found that Kansas has the perfect setting as to how I was thinking of. I know that the western side are wheat fields, while going towards the east becomes more green and more forests. I just really want to know a place where it might be in the middle because even though it's fiction, I would like to choose real world locations. Also, I feel that it would help me better imagine and further the setting and the general atmosphere I want to create.
As for your question, I am an architecture major so maybe that's why i'm so persistent into finding the place I feel most to how my description is.
