I guess it could seem rather obvious, given that I’m working on a series about mermaids, but I’ve been doing some research on the ocean. Now first off, wow. There is so much a person could study, it’s hard to know where to begin! But secondly, in the course of all this, I’ve picked up some interesting tidbits that I thought might be cool to share (even if they may not have all made it into the books).
Ever wonder what research looks like for an author?
Well, messy. Let’s just start with messy, for me at least. And it involves tons of browser bookmarks. That too.
But it also means learning things that you might otherwise have never known. For this new series I’m working on – the mermaid one – I’ve been digging into all sorts of topics I wouldn’t have anticipated needing to research. It’s crazy what random details can crop up in a story. But as part of that, I thought it might be nice to share a few of the sites and videos I found with you.
