7)Last, but not least, I once experienced what one of my characters was experiencing. I had just finished writing a scene about my heroine who was gasping for air. Moments later I choked, and I was gasping for air, wheezing. I guess God wanted me to know what it was really like so I could bring the scene to life.

That’s all there is to it. Now let’s get out there and nominate seven other fantastic bloggers!
