Country Mouse in the Big City
Now, don't get me wrong--I have put my characters into cities vastly different places from some little town (in centuries way different from this one), but the bulk of what I write isn't set in NYC, or even San Francisco which I know quite well. I just don't feel as comfortable, and don't have the ability to layer in as much detail as I normally like. I'm sure there are authors out there who manage this much better than I do :)
So, here's what I'm wondering: have you noticed that you tend to use settings that are more familiar to you in your stories? Or do you enjoy a setting that is totally different than what's outside your door?
