And you know what that means! I have to put up a new blog! LOL I can't stand to have the same thing up for very long.
Okay, what to blog about. I'm stuck. I can't go much farther on the WIP because I need more factual info. So I'm headed to The Dalles on Friday to find out more about a hotel I'm using in the book and more about gambling and the corruption happening in the town in the year I have it set.
I tried to borrow the microfilm through our interlibrary loan, but they couldn't get a hold of it for me. I've been hitting the internet. I found a good site for photos and some interesting historical facts, but not all the kind I need, so I'm headed to the source.
There is one more scene I can writer before I need more info, so I will work on that between now and my trip.
This is a new experience for me, I usually have everything completely researched before I start a book, but I wasn't sure how I wanted to go with this book and left it in the air until I'd decided which town they were headed to and what they were going to run into. And I like the adventure!
If you've read my other books, did you feel I didn't slap you in the face with the historical aspects? And if you are writer, do you do all the research before you start or do you research as you go?
