I don't have much to say tonight (as many of you can see, it is rather late), but I felt inclined to make a couple of observations:
It's late and I have to work tomorrow.
I have a story that's begging to come out.
And the new semester is starting.
And I have to start exercising again.
But I'm okay with all of that.
Because I have been given a place to start my research for my story! I was at my Grandpa's house during break and he introduced me to a series about the Byzantine empire. Since I was raised in a Republic, the whole court life and political maneuverings don't come easily to me. And my world doesn't really resemble America...at all. So naturally I was super glad when he told me about these books and I can't wait to get my hands on them!
It seems a little old looking, but I am really excited! There is so much that I want to put into this story, but lack of info has really hampered me.
I only need to avoid the trap of doing everything except writing the story, yes?
What research do you guys do when you're prepping for your stories?
