E is for Expert: My A to Z Wish List

I'd like to be an expert on something important. A real expert, the kind that might get called to serve as an expert witness in a big court case...or before Congress. Wow, testifying before Congress as an expert. That would stroke a person's ego, wouldn't it?

I know some experts like that. One is Jane H. Bock, forensic botanist. She knows so much cool stuff that she even gives lectures to crime writers.

Yep, I wish I was an expert on something important, just like Jane.

Pat - Oh, I know what you mean. I wish I were an expert, too. But I think we are all experts in what we write. No-one knows our stories and characters better than we who create them. So really, you are an expert :-).

I think everyone is a master of something - just have to find out what it is

we can always call ourselves experts--and hope no one asks too many questions :)

If I wrote in that genre, I'd want to know what she knows.

a lot of people are quite knowledgeable, they just don't have that piece of paper stating it. as far as obscure facts, google works wonders.

With fiction, we can pretend to be experts at anything we want ... as long as we do the necessary research. haha.

Interesting. Being an expert sounds stressful to me.
