Research can be a tedious task

Every author knows that sometimes research can be a tedious task. All of it isn’t enjoyable, but unfortunately it’s a must if you are writing a book. Sometimes the gruesomeness and pure ugliness of humanity down through the ages can make you close the research and try again another day. A fresh day when you feel up to reading more about just how big of an a$$hole people were back whenever.

Look at that pile of books, articles, pages at the top of this post. This is what most authors are remembering. They are remembering they had to wade through all this when someone complains about their book and go berserk on whomever complaining. LOL!

I wouldn’t say it’s the idea thing to do but it happens. It’s like if you worked for months on a presentation at a corporate job and the morning you are to present it. A co-worker comes in and urinate all it before the boss arrive. That’s understandable if you go berserk on them and throw them out the window.

Or perhaps they are remembering all the times they had to look at something truly horrifying or horrendous to get an accurate description of a grisly scene. Some authors can create it from their imagination and some can not.

An author knows he or she has a truly terrifying,  scary scene when it scares them. Yes, your own work can scare you. LOL! ♠

Tip : Never write a deeply frightening scene late at night in a basement or alone in a room. Remember you have get up and go to bed at some point and  your tired, exhausted eyes will be seeing your own monster in every nook and corner of your house. LOL! Don’t feel like a chicken or coward. You aren’t alone. Dean Kook, Stephen King has all admitted fear of their own creations. But the more you write the more accustomed you becomes to it. 🙂

About unholypursuit

A. White, a former librarian who is also long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
