I am wanting to write a story for the new Another World contest, but am not sure when I should set it. It’s about a young couple who have to fight to be together when everyone tells them its wrong as they live in a world where couples are put together by a government compatibility test. I was thinking it could go one of 2 ways, here they are:
I could set it in the present as I know about it and would be able to encorporate national and international events more easily, or …
I could set it in the future and create a whole new set of laws, ideals and my own events.
Which do you think would be easier for me? xx
