January Blues or Something? — 4 Comments

  1. Congrats on getting back into it, Pam! I think January was a hard month for a lot of people. A lot going on, crazy weather, etc., etc.

    Question about your novel: Do you like doing the research? You mentioned you need to figure out climate, rainfall, what it takes to make leather armor (which I have to say, already gets me interested in your story!)…I see how it’s necessary, but I cringe whenever I have to do that kind of stuff. It feel so tedious to me, but maybe you can give me some pointers on how to make it less so?

    • Hi Sione. It’s a funny thing about research. Years ago I used to get really into it and spend far too much time reading up on historical stuff. Now I’m a bit more impatient and just want to find out the facts that I need for the story.

      So I’m not sure I have the answer on how to make it less tedious. I think though I’ll make it more organised by writing out the specific questions that need answering for this book and tick each off as the answer is discovered.

      Good luck with the next ROW80 week anyway!
