GET IT RIGHT

Once you research something, especially if it has a technical aspect, don’t assume you know it well enough to write about. There will still be elements you get wrong. Your character has probably been playing guitar or brewing beer or juggling for years; you’ve only read about it or watched someone do it for a few days. So if possible, ask the expert you shadowed to have a read over your draft; I bet they’ll pick up something. So, thanks JP.

Being irreligious I don’t really do carols, but I’ll make an exception in Jeff’s case.

Merry Christmas. See you in the New Year.
