Greetings Glen, I seem to pass here asking lot of questions but thats because I want this novel of mine to have much ' Credibility ' in it, so it doesn't seem shallow to the reader. The events of the story are located in Florence, and I asked myself is it okay to actually mention real names of neighborhoods in Florence and throw it in the corners of words of some details? Like for instance, yesterday I wrote a paragraph describing a boy's emotions from what he sees all around him in a poor alley, and as he walks he sees that the scenes around him are getting more darker and even naughtier to his innocent sight; I was hesitated at that moment, I looked up before on the history of Florence and see its a city with a proud culture and amazing art, and even searched if there were any bad rumors about some neighborhoods, because if there is, I'd mention the name of it. It'll be weird to repeat every time ' in Florence ' and sometimes also i have to mention real details about events and parties that be done there. Whether it was the locations, the events, or political matters, I don't want someone in the future to tell me ' No but Florence isn't like that ' or ' How do you know if its economy was bad or not to have a revolution done in the story?
