So I have a bit of backstory that I personally love for one of my characters, but I want to do right in my portrayal and I'm not sure if my googling on the internet has been enough to teach me. I have two friends on another website who've each talked about having the kind of backgrounds that I think they'd be able to share aspects of the experience that my writer's research might have missed. The problem is: I've only asked one of them so far, she agreed to look over my notes, I PMed the most relevant parts, and she said she'd get back to me on Friday but hasn't yet. Is there a way for me to not be passive-aggressive about either a) asking my first friend for an update, and/or b) asking my second friend for another opinion? Or should I just wait a while longer?
