I woke up to snow on Friday. I had to chip the ice off the windshield and give the frozen door an extra yank to get it open. In two days the predicted high is 75 degrees.
And you know what? I love Ohio. I want to find a way to incorporate Ohio into my novel, without it feeling forced. One thing I've learned is that using landmarks in your writing can be touchy; it can come off as cheesy or sentimental.
Any of you tried being specific with setting? Keeping a story in a certain location?
And... if I decide to set my novel in Paris can I write off the trip?
