    Use a lot of descriptive adjectives.
    Like in horror films you would want to use a lot of chilling suspense type adjectives.
    In romance you would want descriptive fiery warm adjectives.
    See if there is a creative writing course available in your area like maybe at a community college.

    This is all I could find that might help

    Scene (fiction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Awesome Library - English

    Teacher Resource Exchange

    You might also try finding a book on creative writing.
    Also look up synonyms for words you want to use.
    Like if you want to say the dark wood walls
    Looking up the synonyms you might come up with something like
    The gloomy rustic walls
    Or the rich vibrant mahogany walls

    Authors use words and phrases to guide the reader. In a movie you see this through the background music, theme song, etc.

    You can use alliteration with the sounds that you find capable of explaining the mood.vocabulary and rich language is something that is very important to master and different litterary features.similes, metaphores, anomatophea, alliteration and dicsription of setting all help to set the mood. You should read some of Kate chopins short stories or some classic books recommended by literature teachers.
    Not sure if this is good advise because I am still a student at the age of 13 but hope this helps!
