Writer's Guide to Government Information

Resources to inject real life detail into your fiction

Upgrades For the Future

The purpose of this page is to serve as a “to-do” list for expanded sections or additional topics that may be helpful to writers. I plan to look at this list at least one a month and either add resources on the topics below or take a poll on your desired content.

To-Do

  • World of Government – Provide resources on Congress and expand offerings for executive branch.
  • World of Learning – Create new section that would focus on types of characters found in schools, universities and libraries.
  • World of Science – Create new section that would focus on popular types of scientists. Have an intro that would warn against having extreme polymaths in your stories.
  • Immigration – Create new section. Suggested by Selene B on 1/1/2014 – Focus on history of immigration and current immigration procedures. (Mostly US)
  • Types of Crime – Add a section on Rape/Sexual Assault with appropriate trigger warnings.

If you have a topic that you’d like me to consider for this website, let me know. Give me an example of how it would contribute to world building or character building. You can comment on this page or use my contact form.

I do reserve the right not to add annotations for topics that either don’t interest me at all, activate my own triggers or seem like an overwhelming amount of work for an after-hours project. Suggest away anyway! I’ll probably surprise you on what I DO find interesting.
