    Short & Junk: My Research Process

    in Entertainment

    Arlinya asks: How do you focus your research for stories: Do you layout what you need for plot and hit each high point or do you start with one thing, research everything you can upfront and re-enter research stage later if needed?

    Writing Hitsuzen asks: When you are researching or world-building for a story, how do you determine when you have enough to start writing? I know that there is always going to be something that needs to be looked up or researched in the middle, but how do you know when you’ve got the basics that you need to start? Do you use a list? Is it part of your plotting process or separate? How much if it is character based? And how do you keep from going overboard and world-building into infinity? 

    Please note: Christian Kane Doesn't Work at my Library and it's sad.
