No, this post is not about how to get yourself a day off from work every Monday. Nice try.
So Laura Diamond and I are starting a twin blog series about answering Mental Health (hers) and Medical (mine) questions for fiction writers.
I've been asked questions by writers such as "What test would someone need if they fell off a cliff?" or "What does it really feel like to have a heart attack?" And keep in mind that on Laura's blog Diamond--Yup, Like the Stone every Monday she will post an answer to a question regarding psychological/psychiatric questions that might be relevant to your fiction piece.
Here's how it works.
1) Post a question in the comments section or email me if you prefer, at
2) I'll pick out one (or a few) questions to answer every Monday and I will post links to your blog (unless you choose to remain anonymous).
3) Become a follower of my blog and post a link on your blog if I help answer your question.
4)FYI, this is for fiction only. The information in the post is only for writing purposes and does NOT constitute medical advice.
...So no disguising your personal toenail fungus problems as a mysterious plot twist. 'Kay?
The best part? We won't charge you a bill!
