I noticed the landscapers blowing leaves from the lawns today. It brought up the memory of my Father raking leaves into a pile and letting us jump in the pile. He’d rake it back up after we tired out and burned it. One of my favorite scents is the smell of burning leaves. We don’t have that any more and I miss it.
I’ve noticed how many changes have occurred since my first book was published. I had to pull ‘Rachel’s Rescue’ a romantic suspense since the technology has changed in just a few years. I’m thinking about doing rewrites but its on the back burner while I think about it. I wonder how other authors mange this problem.
Do you not mention things like cell phones? Even that is changing every year.
I’ve been in and out of hospitals in the last two years and so many things have changed. Taking a temperature, pulse rate, blood pressure are all different. Easier with the new machines, but different. How do you write a medical story if the procedures change before its published?
I guess that’s why I like to write paranormal although I have to remember not to use things that might get outmoded.
So how do I keep my stories current? I haven’t figured it out yet, but maybe you have.
