Research and Concerts

Well, I’m working on a project right now.

Before I go on, I have to be perfectly clear: I have no idea what I’m doing.

Anyway – I’ve spent some time organizing my novel today. I need to get my ducks in a row. I have figured out some questions and themes that will be addressed and solved in the book. I’m super excited about them. I have also done a pretty exhaustive explanation of what the book is about.

While writing the explanation of this book, I jotted down a “research to-do list.”

The thing is, I really want this to be good. I feel like my idea is good. I’m writing a book to a youngish audience (13-14 years old or so), but that doesn’t mean I want to write something crappy. I want it to be honest and good. So, I’ve got a lot of work to do.

ANYWAY!!! The exciting part of this is that I just purchased some tickets to the symphony – all in the name of research. I’ll be seeing a performance of Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto.

I’m looking forward to an entertaining evening where I will try to absorb every single detail of the event!

What fun research adventures/experiences have you had?


One thought on “Research and Concerts

  1. I don’t think many of us know what we’re doing until we’ve done it for a while. I sure don’t. The publishing part sounds a bit daunting to me.
    I do a lot of research before I write. I want everything to be as well written and accurate as possible (where possible).
    The symphony sounds fun. I hope you enjoy it.
