Have you ever read a book that has people picking cherries in April? Or maybe people are eating fruits that don't grow in that climate in a time period that doesn't have mass transportation? I have. It detracts from the legitimacy of the writing. So watch your seasons, climates and hemispheres. If you are making up a world what are the growing climates there? Or is it a world where everything is instantly available? Making sure you have such details correct will add authenticity to the writing and create a place readers will want to return to.
But how can I concentrate on writing with one of these in the kitchen?
