Do You Know Something I Don't?

10


10 simbi for fulfilling my request - Virtual OK - Posted Oct 12

I'm writing a book which covers some aspects of life to which I'm completely ignorant. Between working fulltime, fulfilling requests, writing and applying edits, I'm left with very little time (and motivation) to do the research myself.

The things I need to know won't change the way the story unfolds once I apply the proper facts, but the three main things I need help with are:
What's it like to be a murder suspect in Crawford County Pennsylvania, or in general? What are your rights? In the eyes of the law, are you treated like a criminal even when there isn't any solid evidence against you?

What's it like to be a Japanese American woman who's lived through the times of the American internment camps (but was, at the time, a child with a white adoptive father, so didn't have to go)? What's it like to be that same woman, today, in day-to-day interactions? What micro-aggressions and flat-out racism does she still need to put up with?

Also, and this is a scene I'm nervous about my readers getting to, but there's a rape. It's necessary to the plot, otherwise I wouldn't have written it, but it's an experience I haven't had. I'm more confident in the way I've written my survivor's perspective than I am in how I portray the reaction of the close friends when they're left to piece together the information and figure it out for themselves, but I know I want more outside input before I claim to have handled it well.

I'm not asking anyone to do research for me (though if you want to, I won't stop you), but if you have any knowledge or experience with any of this and are willing to share it with me, please do!

About Diana Regolizio

At a school in suburban New Jersey, I started my first novel. I was ten years old, finishing two years later at four hundred pages. I haven't stopped writing since. My first grade teacher predicted I ...would be an author, which I resented because, thanks to the phonetics of the word, I associated it with Arthur, the cartoon aardvark. I was not, nor will I ever be, a cartoon aardvark. I've since graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a Bachelors Degree in Dramatic Writing. The moral to most of my written works falls into the category of “be yourself,” and overall I want audiences to learn to feel comfortable representing themselves as they see fit, and comfortable communicating their needs and honest opinions in times of necessity. While my stories may not all be fit for a G rating, I do my best to make them appropriate for as wide an age group as possible, because everyone can gain something from them.show more
