Visiting Locations

There are pitfalls in setting your stories in real locations, particularly if you choose an area you moved away from and have not visited for many years.

To illustrate this, the following is just a small sample of recent changes in my own neighbourhood.

♦ The local high street has been decimated by the opening of an out-of-town shopping complex.

♦ A multiplex cinema is being constructed on the site of the former technical college.

♦ A series of mini-roundabouts has been built.

♦ Several roads have changed their use from two-way to one-way streets.

♦ A complex system of zebra crossings and pedestrian refuges has been constructed.
