Let’s talk research. Every writer knows there are times in the pursuit of creativity we delve into areas that aren’t pretty and can make the average person sick to their stomach. However, finding information is part of what an author must do for the sake of the story.
Joining a discussion group created for writers with the sole purpose of being able to pick each other’s brains was the best decision I could have ever made. Questions can include topics such as, how much does a head wound bleed or what is the best way to disable brakes on a car?
There’s nothing worse then reading a book and it isn’t believable.
The devil’s in the details.
But, sometimes while you’re searching the internet you come across an article or website that just breaks your heart. With everything I’ve read, seen, and heard while researching my book one would think nothing would shock or surprise me.
I was wrong.
I need to find my happy place.
