Writing Dangerously

As writers, getting the details right means we need to know things. Things that raise eyebrows. For example, I once needed firsthand experience on what it’s like to be trapped in a car’s trunk. Thanks to help from my gleeful teen and an afternoon of stares from the neighbors, I can tell you the answer: dark. Other questions require a more delicate approach. What kind of damage can a knife do? Which guns make the largest holes? Where do you hit someone to knock them out? Better yet, how do you find out without getting locked up?

  1. WHOA! THat’s awesome, even though I don’t believe in the second amendment. That’s great, not cheap however. I strongly agree that great writing is only as good as its journalism.
