9780985826345: You Can Write Characters with Physical Disabilities: Avoid cliches and get your facts right!

The information you need to write characters with physical disabilities effectively! You’re writing a book and one of your characters has a physical disability. Maybe it’s crucial to the plot. Maybe you thought it would be nice to give your character a more unique and unusual back story. Maybe you just want a realistic book and in real life sometimes people have disabilities. Even in a fiction book, you're going to want to get the details right. Is someone with a vision impairment really going to walk up to a stranger and start feeling his face? Can someone with Muscular Dystrophy feel their legs? How does someone without legs drive a car? How does a spinal cord injury really impact sexual function? This book has the answers. It is divided up into sections for nine common physical disabilities you may want to give your characters. Each section includes...

  • An overview of the disability
  • An explanation of the causes of this disability
  • The physical effects of the disability
  • Adaptations and equipment a person with this disability might use
  • Common misconceptions
The second part includes helpful essays about disability in fiction, including common clichés to avoid and playing with stereotypes. The information in this book will guide you in creating a unique and compelling story where physical disability adds to the richness of the book you are creating.
