Something has come up and I can’t complete today’s post. However, rather than not post, thought I would share this article by Rachel Poli about mystery writing. Enjoy and do check out Rachel’s other posts.
Research is a big part of being a writer. You might have a wicked talent for creating characters, threading plot-lines and scoring dialogue but if you do no research then you work will probably have some holes.
Some writers love research, others hate it. I flash between the two depending on my mood.
Now, my personal rule is that any writer worth their salt who WANTS to be published someday has a good collection of reference books in their home. Or knows intricately the layout of the reference section in their local library.
