    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.

    LIVE! with Cathi---Caregiving-A NOBLE MISSION

    in Fitness

    CAREGIVING A NOBLE MISSION...


    When you think of an adult child caring for an aging parent, you envision a young, robust caregiver in the prime of life.


    America's aging population means caregivers are getting up in years as well.  Circa 2012-stats: 40% of caregivers were 50-64 yeas old, and more than a quarter were 65 or older.


    Whether it's a parent or spouse, caregivers need to balance time and roles.  They need to schedule time for "your time out" not burning out.


    How does caring for a spouse differ from caring for a parent?


    STAY TUNED...


    Caregivers need to speak their mind...etc.


    Caregivers need to take time out...etc.


    Let parent/spouse do things for themselves...etc.


    Don't be an ENABLER...etc.


    When a caregiver seeks for outside help...etc.
