More research. Darn. Yay!
Well, I have to say I knew it was coming; I just didn’t want to admit it. I’ve got some more research to do.
The next stretch of writing is going to get pretty darned busy pretty darned quickly, but only if I don’t want to wing it — in a bad way* — and while I know many other writers can get away with that, I can’t. So, it was time to hit the books**.
Of course, the most common danger of research is too little of it, my problem tends to be too much. So, very little writing today, but plenty of reading up and cross-referencing. All very good stuff, though.
Right now, though, it’s time for the day job.
* By which I mean making stuff up that actually has a basis in the real world and therefore setting the story and myself up for some truly embarrassing mistakes of either fabrication or omission.
** And the Internet, because everything I read there is true.
