Staci

Michael, you make a great point about keeping violence realistic. My mom is an avid mystery reader, and one of her pet peeves is when the main character is knocked down or roughed up in some fairly violent way and then pops back up and keeps going like nothing ever happened. These instant recoveries take her out of the story every time, which is never a good thing for a reader or a writer.

Thsnks, Staci. Your mom sounds like a special lady.
