A Rainy Day Doing Research
On this rainy day in the Poconos, what else is there to do for a writer than do research on a new story idea? Oh, and bake, but today I want to concentrate on my new book idea.
I spent most of the day immersed in my laptop, going from website to website and taking notes, not noticing the time.
Other than giving my characters a personality, my favorite part of writing a story is learning new things. If it weren’t for looking for situations to place my characters in, I would not have learned such interesting things as what happens to a dead body in different circumstances.

Of course, I did not know what that meant, not being a forensics investigator or other scientific expert, but luckily, the article explained saponification is an event that occurs after death in which a body undergoes chemical changes that transform body fat into a substance called adipocere, a by-product of decomposition. Fascinating! I love science.
