The limits of character immersion

I spent some time in Iceland sampling the local candy offerings, in order to find my protagonist’s preferred junk food. I settled on Nóa-Kropp, which tastes a bit like chocolate covered Rice Krispies. I brought some Nóa-Kropp home with me, purely as a writing aid, you understand, to help me get into the mood of the story when I sat down to work on it again.

I am eating Nóa-Kropp now. Only, the last time I ate this candy, the temperature was around 12C/53F, and there were clouds in the sky. Now the temperature is 40C/104F, and there’s not a cloud to be seen.

Clearly, this means the candy isn’t working.
