Writing Realistic Fiction


All great authors know that our entire purpose is to create a story for readers that allows them to escape their everyday lives and be transported to a different time and place. And the only way to ensure we paint pictures that are vivid enough to allow our readers to have a visceral reading experience is to get as many of the details of our story right. The best way to do this is by researching before you write certain things you include in the story. You can definitely do online research, but there are many other ways you can research and make sure you know enough about the story you’re writing to make even the most fantastic fiction novel seem like a real experience to your readers. This week, we’re discussing some of the most effective, unique ways you can learn about all the aspects of your story before you write.

In this episode, you will:

· Learn the different aspects of your story that require research and planning

· Learn ways to research outside of internet searches

· Learn how to store and organize your research for easier access when needed

· Learn creative ways to investigate and learn about your setting, characters, and plot
