guest post by Amber ( @LFauthor)
So I’m writing this novel. It’s going great, until the doubt monster starts eating at me. I carry on, well, what else can you do?
Then comes the research bit. Oh, I’m good at that. Love it…normally!
I find the information, I send emails to check facts…
And … nothing! Well, almost nothing!
One guy obviously didn’t read the mail properly, another gave me the wrong information, another still referred me back to their website, even though I had mentioned the fact that I had gone through all the various pages and asked very specific questions which I couldn’t find the answer to.
Many others simply couldn’t be bothered to respond.
So, am I too demanding? I know. We are all very busy!
I didn’t ask the earth, just a couple of questions that mostly warranted a yes or no.
What about you?
I’m conscious that I am writing a novel, so does it have to be completely accurate. How much do you bend facts?
Thank you so much to everybody on Twitter for patiently answering my questions.
An extra special thank you to Elle, aka @enxs She is a wonderful author and has given me much encouragement. Gratitude for letting me write this guest post, my first ever. Thanks also to @PA4Elle, for facilitating this contact.
