Your head has left the story, because the fighting doesn’t jive with reality.  You’ve been left dissatisfied at a pivotal moment, and while you may still go on to enjoy the rest, your subsequent recommendation will forevermore come with a caveat:  “If only…” But what if you are the author?  How do you keep your readers’ heads firmly where they belong – in your story—despite the epic duel that must be fought with weapons you may know nothing about?
