It is important for all writers—novelists, essayists, memoirists and bloggers inclusive—to be believable.
Writing medical language
Medical terminology is a language of its own and can sound inauthentic when used incorrectly.
If you are writing about medical conditions, investigations, operations or types of medications, I can help you word and edit such text to make it sound authentic.
Writing medical dialogue
If you are writing a scene involving dialogue between doctors, patients and doctors, and/or nurses and doctors, I can help you write convincing dialogue that won’t sound stilted, fake or amateurish.
Writing medical scenes
If you are constructing a medical scene, I can advise you if it is viable or unrealistic and help you to gain a sense of:
- patients—the ill, the dying, the injured, the loved ones
- medical staff members’ perspectives
- medical settings—an emergency room, an operating theatre, a car accident, the back of an ambulance
- particular illnesses
- particular medications or operations and their side effects and complications.
