I've been outlining a series for a long time now. I'm about to get started and something has been niggling at me regarding setting a time or year if you will. So my issue is that I don't want to set it in present 21st century because I don't want characters to have the luxury and convenience of mobile technology and the internet. I was hoping that one could just write a story without referring to dates, people could pick up telephones or go to the library. I just don't know if that's sensible or not? What's the professional practise for such a thing. My guess is that I'll just have to set it in the 90s. Thoughts?
