    Your character has to take medication with a meal; “What exactly does this mean?, and how will you make sure your reader understands ( your character’s confusion.) The medication needs to be taken with ‘plenty of water’. “How much is plenty?” Will using details such as these help your story feel realstic?

    Those details will be realistic to anyone who has to take medications. Being confused about what it means will also be realistic. 👿

    My doctor said “plenty of water” means “one full cup.” What the doctor tells the patient will say a great deal about the doctor’s character and attention to detail. Ditto to how the patient reacts to the directions.

    But is that an 8-ounce cup, a 6-ounce cup, or a 12-ounce cup? The cup I usually keep on hand is 32 ounces!
