It's the first Wednesday of the month, and that means it's time to gather for another meeting of The Insecure Writer's Support Group! Our leader Alex J. Cavanaugh has assembled another wonderful bunch of co-hosts: Sadira Stone, Patricia Josephine, Lisa Buie-Collard, Erika Beebe, and C. Lee McKenzie.
Don't forget to visit the IWSG website for great writerly resources!
First of all, this post is going up super late! I'm so sorry for that. I forgot it was IWSG day until just now. In my defense, a lot has been going on. We traveled out of state for a funeral over the weekend. Then I had an important appointment I had to go to today. Life happen, after all. I'm here now, though! Better late than never, right?
So here's the optional question for this month.
What's the strangest thing you've ever googled in researching a story?
I've googled a lot of strange things. One time I looked up how long it takes blood to coagulate. I needed that knowledge to help me describe a murder scene. I also researched how to make bone meal and blood meal. Those two things may not sound weird in and of themselves, but if you read the story I needed that knowledge for, you might be a tad disturbed.
