Irrelevant

Have you ever written something that, later down the road, you realized is irrelevant? Rather, if you got the story published, it would be dated due to a certain section or subject?

I realized that one of the novels that I’ve been working on for a couple of years — one that has spanned it’s own world and stories with a plethora of characters that I adore writing — has something like that. In the beginning of the first novel, one of the characters creates a virtual reality game. Describing the game is one of my favorite scenes in the book, for at the time I was writing it, I was able to dive deep into my imagination with how virtual reality would work.

Now virtual reality is, well, a reality, and that scene doesn’t sparkle as much as it used to.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m also a video game nut, so virtual reality games are amazing! I haven’t had the chance to try them personally yet, but from what I’ve seen, they work wonderfully and I’m so excited that this technology has evolved in my lifetime.

Obviously I can just switch up the scene in the novel, but it won’t be the same, you know? Of course, there are other books out there that play with the virtual reality concept, books that I’ve enjoyed and had inspired me to make my own twist on the virtual reality concept. Now, though, I’m not so sure…

Anyone else have similar dilemmas?
