While writing my book, I struggled with incorporating my military life into it. Although it is how I make my bread and butter, writing is my escape from it so this was something that I didn't want to mix. However I did manage to add some sections here and there.
Very few people would probably pick any of it up. The main way I did wiggle it in was by utilizing military slang during some fight scenes. The second way was flanking positions and how the army would interact with one another.
None of it would be noticeable to readers unless there were in the armed forces. But I somehow did want to bring out the military as it is the world I am living in.
Happy Easter everyone!
