Do Your Research


Okay, so it’s the first day of Camp NaNo, and my writing passion has blazed like a burning fire for the past week. I believe Alli Day is back, and I may not have time to blog every day, but I definitely want to keep this up. There’s nothing like a rekindling after a long, dark period of nothing but ashes.

One thing I have had revealed to me within the past few months is that if you want to be a good writer, you HAVE to do your research. It is a must, because if you don’t it will show and people will read your work and say, “This writer has no idea what he/she is talking about.” That is not a thing that any writer wants said about them. It suggests that you’re either lazy, dumb, or don’t know any better.

If you decide to do your research, it is going to take time. Probably a long time. For me it has taken almost a year, but in that year my knowledge of my chosen subject has become 10 times richer and deeper. It was so worth it, and now I feel that I have the knowledge and the resources to actually write a good book.

So far I have written over 4,000 words in my novel, 1,882 for Camp NaNo. It’s not a lot, but it’s a start! Happy Monday!

    Pretty good start. Do 1800 and a day and you’ll barely finish in time.
    I think…
    Sorry, I’m too lazy to check if the math is right.
    GOOD LUCK ANYWAYS!
