Authors, Horror, stories, Writing Advice

Oh Memory!

One of the themes of my novel deals with human trafficking. It’s a crime that is taking place in cities and towns across the country and around the world. I’ve covered the issue on numerous occasions as a reporter, so I’ve had extensive opportunities to learn about the subject from victims to victim’s advocates to law enforcement.

All of that background information helps to paint a gruesome picture in a fictional world. So today I read a little and even do some editing on the fly.

By the way, just a piece of advice about something you probably already know; write down your ideas. I don’t have an eidetic memory so that I will forget things. And the other I had an idea for a story, but since I didn’t write it down, well I lost that story.
