Do you love it?
Do you dread it?
Sometimes it can be hard to get the right balance no matter how you feel about researching. If you love it you can sometimes get lost in it and wind up with way more information than you could need to write a hundred books. And if you dread having to do it you can sometimes not do quite enough which can make writing your book more difficult.
Personally I really enjoy researching things, I find it fun to learn about something new, and I like to make sure that what I put in my books is as accurate as it can possibly be, but that doesn’t always mean I know how much research is the right amount for a topic.
So how do you find that perfect balance?
And does it make a difference which genre you’re writing?
