On Research

Research is the chocolate frosting on my writing cake. And I'm wild about chocolate frosting. Why do I adore hunting down information so much?

Digging for information often sparks my imagination and sends me flying in an unanticipated creative direction. Like yesterday. I spoke with an old friend, a retired bio-chemist, who introduced me to buckyballs. I can't stop thinking about them and how I will use them in my current work-in-progress. Just saying the word buckyball makes me giggle.

What about you? Do you love doing research? What fun things have you discovered?

WHAT I'M READING THIS WEEK: Room One (Andrew Clements) Blind Faith (Ellen Wittlinger)
