2 thoughts on “How to Write Injuries

  1. When I first saw this I thought it was about carpal tunnel. Haha! Great article! I try, for the most part, to make my injuries realistic. I did extensive research on gunshot wounds for Zen Alpha. While I wanted to cut immediately to a scene where Ward wakes up and he and Bradley are conversing, I think postponing that for time in the ICU added a bit more drama. It takes sometimes a year or more for people to recover from losing a lung. Knowing that made me feel sort of closer to the character. It made him more real to me. (I just read that and it sounds insane. )
