I didn't post it up here, (which, in hindsight might have been a good idea), I think I asked it down in the Hatrack Groups section.
quote:I wish you could have heard my discussion with my brother-in-law about an upcoming scene that he has a certain amount of expertise in--bear maulings. He was recommending slashes, including one that would cause my main character's intestines to spill out--and of course he would trip over them. Heck, I said, maybe the bear could trip over them too. What a great way to escape--trip the bear with your intestines so that it falls back and hits its head and blacks out, just long enough for you to escape. Of course, chances are it would land ON your intestines, and then you're stuck. Authors have such better conversations than other people!
If anyone has any advice about murders or bear maulings, I'd love to hear it. It's not really my forte.
