Hailey's Novel Diary – 4/18/17

I've considered making this book take place in the recent past. For now, no time period is mentioned, but I'm thinking it might be just before 2000. I wouldn't come out and say when it is. I'd just causally mention the Braves winning the World Series or that new movie about the Titanic.

That leads to a few interesting dilemmas. I know that today, in 2017, high school seniors go to professional photographers to have their senior pictures taken for the school yearbook. They're usually very individual and look nothing like the junior and sophomore pictures. Some schools give students a very wide berth. Some are more strict.

But did they do that in Southern California in the late 1990s? Or were they still using the old system where seniors had general portraits taken just like everyone else? I don't know. They say Google knows everything, but Google doesn't know either.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
