: Mythbusting for Writers
: JustineGraykin January 25, 2014, 03:05:49 PM
Exploding car crashes and busting out of buried caskets; horror movie effects and terrible police procedural sequeces. Technobabble and comic book physics. Many writers try to write scenes from their favorite visual media, but readers have a different level of suspended belief than a movie-goer or someone watching television. A panel of editors share their favorite, or most common, "myths" they've busted for writers in hopes that future writers will not make the same mistakes in their manuscripts.
