Behind the Scenes: The Research Before the Book
Before the book, before a writer types a word on a page, there is an idea. And behind that idea are the characters, the background, the location. Research is an important aspect of any story. Whether the writer does all their background information before they begin to write the story, or if they make it up as they go, they will need to get to know the people they are creating. The writer will need to know their character’s job, their family, their friends. When it comes time to add this information to the books, it will need to be added with delicacy and finesse.
