Periodically I like to open up a post specifically to invite people to ask me questions. They can be about anything, really, although I don’t guarantee to answer a question if I absolutely don’t want to . . .
I tend to answer the questions each in a separate post (as I tend to be long-winded).
Questions about the books, about characters, about writing, about outrigger canoe paddling, and so on are all welcome.
If you ask a question which could be construed to have spoilers, go ahead and ask, just FLAG it please for those readers who might prefer to avoid spoilers, forex (doesn’t need to follow this exact pattern):
My question (with SPOILERS) is about something that happens in Cold Fire (etc).
Finally, I hope to post a short review of Sherwood Smith’s duology Coronets & Steel, and Blood Spirits, this week, as well as an (overdue) installment of my Avatar: The Last Airbender watch. Next up is episode 7, I think. And I am thinking of running a contest as well because I got a box of books in.
Is it too late to ask a question? Can you talk about your research process? How do you organize information you know you want to use? And then how do you integrate it into your writing?
I’m struggling with doing research for the book I’m working on, and I just feel like I don’t know what I’m doing!
It’s never too late to ask a question! (well, okay, I admit that in some cases it might be, but this isn’t one of them).
I will write a post, or perhaps a couple of posts — be patient, it may take me a few weeks as it is a subject complex enough that I have to think about how I want to organize the information.
That would be great. I’m looking forward to it.
