I have a lot of great resources I dip into when I’m writing, and I received another one for Christmas. It sits on my desk at my day job and feeds me information on a daily basis. Yes, you picked it, it’s a calendar.
The calendar is called ‘Deadly Skills: The SEAL Operatives Guide to Surviving Any Dangerous Situation and Being Prepared For Any Disaster 2018 Calendar’. Quite a mouthful, and quite a calendar!
Let me give you an example. Today’s page of the calendar talks about magnetic navigation and how to make a compass. Later in the week there’s information about crossing an enemies border. Even if I can’t use all the information in my writing, its entertainment value is huge!
Here’s a selection of the lessons I have coming my way this year:
Plenty of story inspiration in this lot…
And yes, I’m keeping the good ones for future reference.
