As I progress through my story, the characters are becoming more real and developed; but I am becoming increasingly disatisfied, with the loosely drawn locations. I have been deliberately vague about town names so far and refered to geographical locations imprecisely. I could use real towns as they are pictured in my mind as I write, but as I am mixing in imaginary places as suit the plot, it is never going to match up. I can see disadvantages to using all real locations, as, if I need to refer to an Ato Z every time I write, it will be a drag and potentially limiting. Is a mix of real locales and made up ones going to work? Am I being lazy? Or sensible? I will be using London for instance and using my knowledge of the city and real locations there, but other places are going to be amalgams of real and imagined places.
