Research It!

Some writers do all their research before starting their book but I’m one of those who do it as they go along. I want to be sure that I really need the information to assist my storytelling before I spend time researching it. Attention to detail and accuracy are essential. This month I’ve been reading up about such varied topics as: the effects of severe concussion, trashing a house (I was amazed and horrified looking at YouTube on this!), bioterrorism, artists’ materials, venomous snakes, and shoulder dislocation. Fascinating stuff!
