Manuscript update: 812 words so far today, including scraping what I did yesterday because it… well… sucked, and redoing it. 🙂
So, I’m starting my new book, and I’ve got the basic idea, the character, the rough layout and the ending. With all that in mind, I jumped in. Eight hundred words in, I started my research.
I know some writers do a lot of research before they begin writing. I’ve heard many people recommend that. But for me, I tend to research as I go, when I feel I need it.
When do you research, all up front or as you write?
