So today has been a day of research for me.
I had a moment this morning where I realised that the direction in which my current WiP was going, was all wrong. I was focusing too much on something which should have been lightly touched upon just to clarify some history. So, I decided to take the plunge before I got too far into the first draft and change direction. I’ve spent all day researching jobs, watching clips and starting a family tree for both the Hero and the Heroine.
My heroine owns a bakery and is the Queen of all cake makers. I trawled the internet to try and find a bakery that I liked – I work well from visual stimulation – but I just couldn’t find the right one. So I spent the last hour, drawing my own! I’m not a talented drawer, but I know what it looks like so that’s the main thing.
Here is a picture of my ‘research’ wall – can you guess what my Hero does for a living 🙂
How do you like to do research?
