The Encyclopedia in Your Head


This is something I saw from last year's forums and I thought I'd bring it back.

Are there any topics that you're very proficient in? Are you willing to help someone out by giving them information about it? You've come to the right place. What topics can you help out other writers with your extensive knowledge about?

I'll start.

- Les Misérables (book, movie, musical)
- Anything involving the character of Hannibal Lecter (movies/books/NBC series)
- James Bond series (mostly movies, some knowledge of the books)
- Sherlock Holmes (books and BBC series)
- Fandom and fan/nerd culture
- Skiing/ski racing
- Musical theory and reading sheet music (bass/treble clef)
- Boarding school
- Autism/ASDs (I have Asperger's)
- All those pop-punk bands you liked as a teenager (Green Day, MCR, etc)
- Ethical philosophies (the 6 or so classical ethical schools like Kantian duty ethics, ethical egoism, etc.)

I'm fairly proficient in science, though I don't have a college degree or anything.

If you have questions about the following, try and find me in a chat setting to talk about it, because that would just be easier all around. Send me a message and set up a time. But here we go.

-Physics (I know a fair bit of entry-level and some higher-level)
-Psychology (this is probably the best thing I can talk about)
-Character building
-Some Astrophysics/Astronomy
-Electronic music
-Dialogue situations [e.g.; what certain character types would say in certain circumstances]
-Other sundry minutiae about language and story structure and plot problems.
-Overcoming agraphia.

That's basically it, I guess. Come find me if you need anything, including betaing a plot outline or beginning a plot outline.
