Umm…. excuse me. (poke-poke) you do realize I said FICTION right. That means it’s not true. It’s not even HISTORICAL fiction. It’s just, made-it-up-out-of-my-brain fiction. I can’t research what isn’t true.
At least that’s what I use to think.
Check out my post on Kathy Temean’s blog Writing and Illustrating for Children where I talk about how I learned that research is an important part of ANY written work.
