Research Tip Tuesday

On this fine Tuesday, I'm featuring Tara MClendon, who offers a fabulous writing-related research tip. Check out her bio below! And remember, if you'd like to see your own tip featured, just shoot me an e-mail. Here's Tara:

"Writers who need to do research for the medical field can register to view journals and abstracts from Web sites like Free Medical Journals, which also has a subscription option. While some sites charge a membership fee, writers can find a variety of free ones by searching the Internet for "Free Medical Journals." Another great source of information is the Mayo Clinic, which provides in-depth information on nearly every known disease."

Tara is a freelance writer and editor. She maintains her own blog Eye Feathers.


  1. What a fun thing to feature someone else's research tip!

  2. Also, doesn't Query Tracker have a doctor blogger that you can ask questions of?

    Great tip!

  3. What a great tip, research is one of the key points of making our stories have realism. This is so cool for the fact that I am going to nursing school and it might help out with my horror short story, just in time for Halloween.

    "Love that holiday."

  4. Luckily, I can just ask my wife, though she tends toward medical-speak a bit too much for my liking ;)

  5. I love doing research! I've never had to do any medical research yet, but if I do this is a fantastic tip!

    Thanks Casey and Tara!!

    xoxo -- Hilary

  6. Thanks for featuring the tip. I hope it helps the next Michael Crichton. :]

  7. I just wanted to thank you for your Agent Spotlight posts. I've queried a number of agents in this past summer, several from your list. I've been in touch with three of yours(two nice rejections, one still pending).

    Your information is comprehensive. Thank you so much!
