(Novel writing) Any tips to prevent writing dated fiction? The world I’m describing is the same as our present (just 4 years from now) but I won’t specify the year exactly. Thoughts?

This is a really interesting question because I realize I like to write fictional scenes or from the past. The best advice I have is to take in your surroundings and try to embody that into your writing. You are living here right now so it should be easier. Pick your setting and time of day then add the senses that you experience every day. The touch of a table, the screens, the people walking, everything! I like to start by just straight out writing everything I can sense in a single moment so it's easier to describe later.

Hope this helps!
