I don’t know about you but I find I always end up with the weirdest stuff in my history when I’m planning a book, and I’m wondering what’s the latest thing you’ve had to research for your story? What’s the strangest thing you’ve had to look up? have you ever searched something like “How to hide a body” and thought ‘the FBI is putting me on a list somewhere I know it’
I’m in the early stages of planning a new book and I don’t remember where the idea came from. What I do remember is having some beers the night before and waking up to two articles about something called “solarpunk” open on my phone and one more article about zeppelins.
I don’t know what kind of drunken thought inspired me to look that stuff up but I’m glad I did because now I’m in the planning stages for a steampunk-ish fantasy story that I’m really excited about.
