My Daily Word – Research
I hadn’t planned on blogging today, since I am knee deep in preparing my 5,000 word submission for critique in my Gotham Writers Workshop.
However, I just read a blog posted by Jennifer Neri a few days ago…and I love the photos she included with it: Jennifer’s Blog. I especially identify with the post-its all over the laptop. :)
I love this subject! Research is my favorite part! The problem can be in stopping the research in favor of actually writing. I initially spent about a year researching ancient Egyptian life before I started writing my novel.
In the end, I have at least a dozen notebooks filled with ideas, facts, questions, links, etc. And I have a collection of over 30 books on various Egyptian topics: daily life of Egyptians, Egyptian gods and goddesses, alien theories, pyramid and sphinx theories, etc etc etc.
What I love most….is finding the gaps in history…and thinking of paranormal ways of filling them!
So, thanks Jennifer…for inspiring today’s daily word…research. I’ll admit…today’s senryu is very corny, but it’s all in good fun.
Google has found it!
Universe solved and not a
Keep researching…and writing!
