One of my favorite parts of writing is having the excuse to research all kinds of different areas, either as part of a setting, or a character’s job/life situation, or just to be sure I don’t look like a total doofus.
Some of the items I have researched lately:
- The Antarctic Ice Cube project.
- Post-doc programs in physics.
- How to start a coffee shop.
- Flowers (and their season) in the Canadian Thousand Islands.
- Prison sentences.
- Parole in Ontario.
- Custody laws.
- Backyard blacksmithing.
- Political scandals.
