One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other. Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.
This week’s topic is:
There is a point where the types of technology included within your story can “date” it or limit its appeal to future readers (think rotary phones or flip-style cell phones or VCRs). Some types of fiction will benefit from such technological references, but other styles may be hampered by it. Do you avoid specific technological references in your stories? What pros and cons do you see about including technology as part of your storytelling?
Let’s discuss this in the comments and see what our community thinks.
Do you have an idea you think would be a great topic for a future The Writer’s Circle post? Do you have a question you’d like to ask our authors? Fill out the form on our Contact Us page to share your ideas and questions.
