Fiction Friday: What I'd Do For Love

Love of writing, that is.

I once spent a Sunday afternoon in my driveway handcuffed to the steering wheel of my Saturn, trying to figure out how my protagonist could get herself out of that situation.

I have no idea what the neighbors thought, but I'd swear I saw them giving Old Dog some very odd looks afterwards.

(By the way: from the front seat of a '94 Saturn SL1 it's possible to pull down the backseat and access the trunk. So if you happen to have a crowbar in there....)

  1. It'd be pretty hard to escape out the trunk if your hands are cuffed to the steering wheel. Maybe your main character could be a contortionist?

  2. You are so awesome. I love that you did that.

  3. haha. you rock...i think i would do the much for fun than research...

  4. Soaking in the action yourself? A hard but adventurous way!

  6. Visiting from the Goddess. Congrats on the POTW. This tickled my funny bone just picturing a zealous author staging something she is writing in her book. Amazing. Great post.

  7. That is funny. I rank that up there with movie stars who undergo a physical transformation to prepare for a movie role. I think we have all had to do some explaining to our neighbors at one time or another to keep them from thinking we are crazy.

  8. Give your protagonist a cell phone.

    Next question?

  9. So that's your story and you are sticking to it, eh?
