Inspiration can come in many forms. Here I sit talking to a friend that's newly engaged! We're texting back and forth and I'm over the moon excited for her! She's dove into conversations about gowns, location, food.
I'm not sure if it's the time of year for engagements but I plan on finding out! In fact, it's gotten me excited to write about a wedding. That's right, I'm planning on a short story about a woman's wedding day. That one beautiful moment in time! Remembering those feeling I felt on mine!
I love research because you have the opportunity to experience something new or enjoy the old.
As a chick lit/romantic comedy writer I get the constant excuse to watch trash television, buy wedding magazines, the works!
Of course there are moments not everything is peachy. My characters do have their issues. Average divorce rate, worse dates, places where it snows continuously.
In saying that I still very much enjoy every aspect of the research, it's just not peachy for my characters.
What's your latest research project? I love to hear the depth one will go for a story!
Happy Writing! Happy Weekend!
