I'm writing a realistic story that takes place in 2007. It's completely real, no fantasy, science fiction, etc. However, I've ran into problems with choosing a setting. I have a very distinct idea of what the town my main character lives in would be like and no matter how much I research, I can't find what I'm looking for. On top of that, I don't want to chose a place and risk portraying it incorrectly. Is it okay to make up a town in a realistic story?
