Such advice, however, can lead you astray -- as in the research I did for a proposed book set in Hitler’s GermanyDream beauty pro hard sell. I read in a Paul Gallico book how the Nazis would put a tin bucket over a person’s head and beat on it with a stick to drive the poor person crazy. I wondered if this were really true.

Remembering Michener’s advice on living the experience before you write about it, I decided to give it a try.

So I went out to my backyard and glanced around to make sure no one was watching. Then I put my scrub bucket over my head and beat on it with a broom handle. The noise was unbelievable and unbearableDream beauty pro hard sell.

I banged the bucket a few more times to make sure I could write that scene for the book. With my ears still ringing, I quickly pushed back the bucket and found myself looking into the astonished, fearful face of my neighbor, staring out of her apartment window, located directly above the apartment my husband and I were renting.

We stared at each other for the longest time without saying a word. I know she thought I was crazy.

Within the week, the poor woman moved out! 

I had several choices on Saturday.  or go to the golf store and waste hours looking at a bunch of stuff I couldn’t afford.

It was crowded at the golf store. I like it when it’s that way. The salespeople are too busy to pester you, and you can play with the putters all day long. I have won many imaginary tournaments on that little carpeted greenDream beauty pro hard sell.
