How to Use Brand Names in Your Fiction (Just Like TFIOS)

Excerpt from "Better Novel Project" blog:

"Ever find yourself in the middle of writing your story and your main character starts using a real life product or gets involved with a real company? Something that people use or see or hear about everyday?

Something as simple as, can I have someone drinking a Coke in my story? Or, will Hasbro get upset if My Little Ponies populate my character’s bedroom?

You need to consider what you can and cannot write about before you rest a large part of your story on somebody else’s name brand or trademark."

Easy examples and guidelines to follow here:

Thank you for this, Robert. Great info for those of us (me) who use trademark hogwild at times.


Guerrilla Warfare For Writers

A Writer is…
A humble, receptive student and negotiator
But the heart that beats within his breast
Is a determined savage
Unfamiliar with surrender--by C.H. Stevenson
