And you think writers make this stuff up!

Reading & Writing

A teenager died and more than 20 people were injured after a van filled with beehives crashed into a lorry and overturned on a motorway near the resort of Marmaris, in southern Turkey.
Rescue workers, police, medics and beekeepers tried for more than an hour to release two people trapped inside the vehicle, their faces carpeted with angry bees. The swarms stayed on the vehicles attacking drivers for hours.
And if I put that in a book, critics would complain it was unrealistic.

    I dare you to write that, setting it somewhere other than Turkey. Set the text of the news article at the start, as a prologue to the short story.

    You know it’s right…
