Yep. The title says it all.
So basically, I'm kinda torn. I'm writing a new chapter for my novel right now, and yeah. So you see, the main character of my novel is going to have her first day in school, and specifically, everything in my novel is set in Japan.
I was doing some research a while ago for references on how education works in this country, and what a coincidence. The first day of school years in Japan is actually in April, the exact date is either April 7 or April 8, which is actually pretty cool since if I smack that into my novel, that would mean that the timeline in my novel would pretty much have the same timeline as in real life (to Japan, at least).
But then again, for example, what if I put April 8 in the chapter, but I published it on April 10 (haha I mean, it's not impossible since I'm just halfway done with writing the chapter), it would be... a bit weird? I mean, sure, my novel can have a bit of a different timeline... but still. Would it be better to put something like April XX as a date? What would you guys suggest?
