Research is Hard
Well, it can be. I have made a list of questions I need answers to that relate to the terrain of the country and how this affects the climate. I do have dry conditions on the leeward side of the mountains that circle around the inner part of the country, with wetter conditions on the coast BUT I also have a lot of farmers in the inner part of the country as well as different communities nearer the mountains that include a fishing folk on the riverside and some people who farm the lower terraces and herd a type of goat that gives long hair suitable for producing clothing and wall/floor coverings for the caves they live in. So what on earth can the farmers etc. farm? Still trying to work this out at the moment but it is the nitty gritty that is holding up the second draft, as this must work practically speaking.
Anyway, time to put up the list of those lovely ROW80 people ….
You’re so right. Research is hard. I hope you figure it out soon. Have a great week!
I hear ya on the nitty-gritty stuff holding up the writing – that happens to me all the time! I just note “look this up” in the first draft, but when revising–oops, that’s when I need to look it up! Sometimes, I need to look it up during the first draft because what happens next is dependent on the info, so in those cases, the wordcount sometimes suffers. Good luck with yours!
