Write the plot first; add the descriptions in the next draft where the setting requires it.

comment Writing about a real place
Are you representing your work as a documentary or "based on the truth"? If it's "fictionalized history," you may be okay, but you need to be wary of libel. Best bet is to talk with a lawyer.

comment How to write a “state of the art” chapter
@Jay I've edited the post to read "raised." I think you got the gist of the OP's intention, although that's a charming malaprop. :)

@TommyMyron I'd use the digits and letters for this example. Writing out the words for such a long item seems ridiculous.

I hesitate to DV, but if you're talking about narration in prose, your answer is incorrect. "AKA/aka" isn't used in narration the way you've written it.

comment How to balance for readers who are not technologically literate
The OP specifically noted he did not want to use your option 3, the cabbagehead. It's a perfectly valid choice to use one, and I've suggested it elsewhere on the site, but the scene doesn't have room for one, according to the author.
