This is my first post based on a TCWT prompt, and hopefully the first of many. Let’s get started. The prompt was, “What are some of the coolest/weirdest/funniest/most disturbing things you’ve researched for a story?” * 70 percent of the research I do while writing is on thesaurus.com to see if the words I use […]
