Today I started writing my second novel, Forgotten Fortune (book two of my Timelink trilogy).
I spent about two months doing the online research required, and I did it from a specific browser- one used only for book research.
I did this because when I’m done, I can look back at all the keywords I searched for during my research.
Here’s what I searched for the past three months:
San Francisco’s Chinatown, Leg warmers, Taco Bell, Manatee life span, Machine guns, Rescue dogs, Syphilis, Antimatter, Ferrari, Clown porn, CIA missions, Tom Slick and Gertie Growler, Grilled cheese sandwich, Nuclear meltdowns, 1920’s Chicago, Antigravity, Packard Motor Car company, Helicopters, D-cups, Black Sox scandal, Judy Garland, Mad Men, and Sean Spicer.
Should make for a stimulating book!
And on a side note, I hope the above list of research topics puts to bed that stupid theory that long-term pot smoking affects your brain.
