It is question and answer time again on the show, and we’ve got some excellent listener questions on topics ranging from cookies to plotting, with stops in between at some thorny legal issues and Elmore Leonard’s 10 Rules for Writing.
In the pre-show we discuss the thoughts of the author who shared his work with us for our past three episodes, then we dig into the questions.

Re trademarks, lawyers always want to be super-safe in what they recommend. It’s my understanding (I’m not a lawyer either 🙂 that what is legally required is to avoid using them in ways which a reader might reasonably understand as naming or labeling our own activities.
Virtually every significant brand or model name is trademarked these days (because that’s how lawyers keep busy) …
Thanks, Karl – It’s good to know that there are plenty of us “non-lawyers” out there! Great point that nearly everything out there is trademarked now. Here’s something I found from Helen Sedwick’s website that further explains what’s allowed. http://helensedwick.com/how-to-use-real-people-in-your-writing/
