blood oranges are
we can
slice them open
without a moment’s
thought, -
their crimson juices
licked from our lips
like ichor.
& that is what
i want to be. -
scarred fruit,
still savoring
the promises
i sucked from
your mouth -
to wear
like staples
along my spine.
    - i was cut open

A Guide to Writing Combat-Related Mental Illness
Coming Back from Combat: A Writer’s Guide to Combat Related Psychological Illness in Fiction
The aim of this guide is simple: plenty of people want to write about war, to explore it, to understand it and understand soldiers they know who are in it or have come from it. But, often times putting the aftermath, the pain, and the psychological impact war has on the mind into words is difficult to do well.
This guide exists to help fiction writers accurately portray psychological disorders in their work, because the people who suffer from these disorders and their loved ones deserve honesty and do not deserve to be misrepresented. The guide is here to help writers understand how these disorders come about, how they are treated, and how to think critically about how they might impact the person who has them.
I. Introduction
1. A disclaimer, and polemics.
2. Why are you writing a psychological illness into your story?
3. Terms you should be familiar with for this
