“Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought”
~ Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
My shiny new project requires research. Much research.
This is the first book I've written that hasn't come entirely from my own head. It's new territory for me. In fact, if I manage to pull off this story, I may have a full-fledged middle grade on my hands. That's a pretty big deal for a PB and chapter book writer. My current MS is a grand total of 17,200 words (ish)!
I'm excited. It's been a long time since I've been so excited about a project. But then, as people closest to me know, I've waited a long time for this shiny new idea!
The challenge: How to effectively organize my information and fully develop the ideas.
Do you do any research for your stories?
How do you manage all the info?
