What season does your novel take place during? I guess that can change depending on how long your story is, but what season did you start with and why? How did/does it affect your story? When I started my novel, I didn't have a season in mind. I went back and added some winter, and it seems to be an improvement. Some slippery ice, a crash or two into a snowbank, the closeness we seek when it's just that cold. Adding a season, made my story feel more real. And seasonal settings aren't that hard to write or include. Do you have a season in your setting? This is more for fun than anything else.
