  1. Don’t you just laugh sometimes at the stuff you have to research for writing projects. My internet browser history would disgust most people!


    • There’s that strange side-effect, too – when you are in a conversation with someone and you come up with some really weird bit of trivia about Egyptian curses, or 17th century cosmetics, the care and feeding of hammerhead sharks, how to make a bomb using a pack of playing cards, or the best way to cook an ant-eater, and everybody looks at you just plain W E I R D.
      Side effects of research – but I like research nonetheless.
