Today, I’m over on The Blood-Red Pencil. I’m blogging about that possibly most hated chore of writers – researching. Even if you write only fiction, you end up having to do research since not everything can be made up. If you get things wrong, readers will catch it and you’ll lose credibility.
So how do you research? What sources do you use?
We turn to libraries, nonfiction books, newspapers and magazines, Wikipedia, and the Internet. We travel to places where our characters go or live. But while our characters may go off on a two-week cruise, we may not be able to afford that. So what then?
Zip over to The Blood-Red Pencil and read some of my ideas for research.
