    I love to dig and research things and can so easily get lost on those rabbit trails. On the other hand, I love when I’m reading a book that is well-researched. It really enhances the plot. Thanks for contributing, Terri!

    I have a lot of trouble with the Rabbit Hole too. It’s just way too easy now to find information online and get caught up in Googling for more. I have fond memories of doing “real” research at the University of Illinois Library back in the mid 80s. There is something special about sitting near the stacks, soaking up the book smells while we read and take notes (with pen and paper, by the way). Excellent post, Terri.

    Great post, love the research too, and the advice to write and leave an asterisk or a line to remind you to go back and verify. Research is also great for finding new inspiration!

    Thanks for the post. It made me so grateful to write in a completely made-up world. I don’t envy anyone writing historical fiction. So much more work. :)
