Hi, I'm a young writer and am very taken with all the realism books that have been written and have every intention of writing one myself. However, I have found that 21st century technology, Iphones, the internet, etc, do not have a place in most story lines. The problems they create are immense. Your characters have no good reason not to be able to contact each other, know something, get lost, have frequent human interaction, etc. I think this is a problem for most genres of lit. but if I am trying to write a realism style book in the 21st century they completely crash it. You get what I mean? Does anybody have any ideas on how to work around this problem other than having every character be a technology hating loner?
