Everyone's always telling us to write what we know, but the truth is that writers often have write what they don't know. Getting the details right creates a sense of realism, but slugging through the mounds of research that doesn't apply can be time consuming.
I'm putting together a section of my blog aimed specifically at helping authors cut to the chase, get the information they need, and get it right. Maybe you know guns. Maybe you're a master chef. Perhaps you tinker with software programming. Let's pool our resources to make it easier for authors everywhere.
- Focus on helping others understand the system behind the details.
- Show ways that writers can apply your information in their writing.
- Provide links to good places to find the details.
