So, Happy Forth of July for the Americans reading this. And Happy Friday/Saturday/Sunday for everyone else reading this. It actually could be some other holiday today, but I am ignorant of those.
Also, since it is a holiday as well as my great-grandma’s 94th birthday, I have to make this post sadly short. Thus, the “real” post so to speak: Weird Things Writers Say.
“Maybe I don’t pump enough emotions into their death scenes or something” Me, talking about making readers cry.
“Hey, I need to know how to remove a bullet. Also, is it possible to make a bullet that kind of shatters as soon as it enters a body?” Me, about one my my characters getting shot.
“If you wanted to poison someone, arsenic or bleach be more effective?” Girl at a NaNoWriMo write-in. We decided that arsenic is more toxic and you would need a smaller amount, but bleach, while needing more, is much easier to get a hold of.
“I think my main character would be my best friend. Wait, I don’t think he’d want to be my friend.” An internet friend.
“What’s the easiest way to get rid of a body?” Me, various internet friends, a girl in the Camp NaNoWriMo cabin, a girl at a NaNoWriMo write-in, and I’m sure pretty much every author ever.
“Guys, I need to know how to hotwire a car.” A girl at a NaNoWriMo write-in. It actually appears to be scarily easy.
“If you were to hold someone underwater, how long would it take for them to die?” An internet friend. She’s writing a book about an assassin and it sounds awesome.
What are some weird things that you’ve said? Maybe I’ll make another list!
