DO YOUR RESEARCH
Ïf you talk to animals, they will talk with you and you will know each other. If you do not talk with them, you will not know them, and what you do not know, you will fear. What you fear can destroy you.”
~ chief Sitting Bull
Before you begin the process of writing, you may have to conduct fact-checking. If you have a story in mind about other people, you may have to ask for confirmation from them. Don’t stop there, though. After you’ve gathered all the facts and information from these people, you research the significant events.
As a writer, you don’t just entertain your readers; you also need to make sure that you are feeding them factual information. For example, if you are writing about the Indian Wars, you might want to know more about the topic. You need to be aware of the causes, dates, and battles. You don’t want to reinvent the historic data in your book. Research beforehand, and you will be able to write smoothly.
