Occasionally when writing, exceptionally random bits of information are needed. I end up calling people and asking weird questions. I call these "Book Research Questions." They can be anything. For my first book i remember calling a friend's (then) teenage daughter and asking her to explain to me what a bellybutton bar was. Enlightening.
Book Research Question:
has anyone ever had a ring sooo stuck on a finger that it had to be cut off by medical personnel? or, are you in the medical field and have a professional opinion or experience you could relate?
if so, please email me with all the details you can remember. click the 'email me' thing over there on the left.
THANK YOU!!! i have all the info i could possibly need on this, and i'm blown away by the response. i was afraid no one would answer, but wow! Several of you were kind enough to give detailed accounts of your own experiences, AND a real live RN wrote with a medical perspective. Each of you who wrote contributed unique details that will be so helpful when i re-write that scene! THANK YOU!
