30 Days of Writing - Day Thirteen

13. What's your favorite culture to write, fictional or not?

I actually have some ideas in my head that revolve around a short story I wrote three or four years ago, set during a cease-fire in the middle of a civil war spanning our solar system. I haven't completely fleshed things out, but I have a lot of ideas about how human culture could evolve in the years ahead, should the time come that we actually expand our sphere of influence to other planets in the system.

I'm also fascinated by Japanese culture, and would love to try my hand at writing some things set in Japan, be it modern or ancient. For that, though, I have a lot of research yet to do before I would even make the attempt.
