Wow! What a lot of great information. There are so many things I never considered. I have one little tidbit I figured out years ago. It’s not for a real emergency, however, at the time it may seem like an emergence. For surface burns (curling irons, kitchen grease splatters), and itchy insect bites, apply Orajel. It will immediately numb the area.

33 Worst Mistakes Writers Make About Blind Characters



I admire any writer who wants to tackle a blind character. But so many writers take up this challenge and FAIL. They research blindness by reading other fiction books, by observing their blind colleagues and acquaintances, and by tying on a blindfold and pretending to be blind themselves.



I understand the challenges your characters face, their triumphs, their hopes and their fears, because I've lived them. I work with people who have varying degrees of blindness every day, so I've seen every challenge, every situation you could imagine.



Let me share my knowledge to improve your writing. You can create blind characters that readers will fall in love with.
