So, I’m tending to a kid with strep right now. Lots of kid movies and pampering, which has me thinking about being sick in a story. It doesn’t come up too often unless it’s a central part of the story. I kind of used one in Curse of the Dark Wind. Anyway, let’s get to the question before I’m back on the parent job.
- Have you ever used a disease in a story? Why or why not?
- What is one thing that you think is necessary when using a disease in a story?
- What is something you want now or as a kid when you’re really sick besides sleep?
