1. I need someone who knows about contagious diseases, like the flu.
2. I need someone who works for a power company.
3. And the phone company, any phone company.
4. I need someone in the military, preferably the National Guard.
Can you guess what sort of novel I'm writing? If you said Apocalyptic you guessed right. Currently I'm on Chapter 17, which is after the Flood that occurs right off. That part was pretty fun to write, especially after reading that book about the Johnstown flood. But now I'm at a part where it would be really helpful to have the expertise of the aforementioned. I suppose I could just call my local phone and power company and see if someone would talk to me, let me ask a bunch 'what if' questions - briefly of course. And I do have someone in the military I can contact... which leaves a doctor. Wait! Why didn't I think of it?! My mom is a nurse! I can ask her all these hypothetical questions. She'll be horrified and probably say something like, "why on earth would you want to write about such morbid things?" but I'll bet she can answer all those pesky questions about contagion protocol and drugs and life saving measures...
I guess that means I don't need anything...except maybe for a little of this to come sooner...
Wow. I can't believe all that green. My world is still white. But it's melting... :)
How are your writing adventures going? Is the weather improving? Getting worse (I hope not)? Know anything about martial law?
