Research is one of my favorite things to do as an author. I've researched so many things over the years, even if it is just for one detail in a story that no one else will likely pick up on, I find myself researching. Sometimes reality is much stranger than fiction! I know bits of me mingle with my characters, and I think that makes our characters more believable.
I agree. I researched about what happens to a body after death and how long it takes to die after slicing a persons wrists, I felt the need to clear my browser...LOL
The thing I do in my writing is incorporate personalities of people I have met/know. It helps make the characters more multidimensional and real.
I do the same. I wonder if most writer's take others that we know, and bits and pieces of ourselves when we are creating...
I watched all those shows growing up, but definitely didn’t know any families like that. I wanted one of those families though. Maybe that’s why I write cozies.
Me too!! I wanted to live in perfect family.
