    Woaah, that’s some list to research. I’m not fond of research myself. Sure, I google stuffs when I want to find out more about things I read or places that interest me or where I want to go. But I bet that’s hardly on the same level of research you’ve done for each of your books! That step of creative writing really fascinate me.
    Thank you for this post, Kim. Congrats and good luck with the release of Staged!

    I tend to get drawn in by research, too…maybe life as a pastry chef? (Hockey occurred to me, but I just like watching–I don’t care to put on stinky gear or get checked into the boards!)

    What an eclectic research list! My favorite thing to research for is travel. I love looking for unique things to do and places to stay and most especially great restaurants. 🙂

    So many things… I think research is all important if you want to be accurate. I would love to write a book about a exotic place, New Zealand for example. Of course, I would have to travel there, spend a long time going to places in order to be perfectly prepared for my book… 😉

    I can’t even say how many times I’ve gotten lost in the time sink of following links from one Google Search to another. And hey, I recently watched a documentary about that porn company. Small world.

    Quite a list of topics to research. I don’t like researching any particular topic but I don’t dislike researching either.

    The research aspect of being an author sounds fascinating (and time consuming!). And is a huge contributing factor as to what makes a book so great. A friend who dabbles at writing just received a 1983 Sears Catalog to utilize as research for a project. I am in awe of the devotion and creativity of anyone who is brave enough to put their ideas and visions to pen and paper. Look forward to reading this book.
