Society (Writing)

This article was not what I expected based on the title, but I found it fascinating on two levels: first, because of my odd upbringing, I don’t know or understand many of the unwritten rules in my own society, and second, because this is what I seek out in my fiction. The article uses American society as an example of the layers of complexity that exist within social strata then gives you questions to explore the depths of your fictional world. He might not be right about the rarity, but he’s right that having this sense of your society will enable complex and compelling conflicts in your story so this is an aspect worth considering.
