I recently started this blog and am happy to know about blogfests. I am loving them all. You know about anymore blogfest??? Please do let me know about them.
This blogfest is about putting up a post on your blog about about something you need help with on your writing. Well, I think I can write a complete sequel of posts about where all I need help. I am new to writing and require lot of help. Mostly because I am still apprehensive about my writing.
Help needed in following areas:
- My first work is Military Fiction in nature. I don't know where to research for the same about military people and their style. I am just reading other military fiction books and am depending on them and am depending heavily on "Future Weapons" program on Discovery channel for info related to weapons. I seriously want to know a lot more about military people, because military fiction is not just about weapons. It is about people like me and you who are ready to attend call of duty.
- Second area is, I identify myself with everyone of the characters in my story or associate them with someone whom I know. So the characters are all confused just like me and you all the time about something or the other. I seriously want to stick my guns about the characters and make them what I decide and not what I observe. You can have a demo of what I am saying here
So please tell me, where to research for military based characters.
With Warm Regards
