Reference Material

Saturday, February 27, 2010

I've been gathering some reference material that I'll need to read before I embark on this next writing adventure. I'll also have to source material that deals with more recent history.

Also, I want to do some interviews with Chinese people I know. A fair amount of men play golf, so I have a starting place, however, I'm thinking of talking to a female friend of mine as it pertains to cultural practices.

Meantime,I'll continue with my research. I'm sure I'll learn lots of interesting stuff.

I'm leaving the links here to prevent me having to troll through my computer wondering where I saved them. :)

  1. This character blog is a great idea! I'm going to open three private ones at Wordpress to record notes for my WIPs. (I prefer Wordpress for this feature because I've heard they back up the blogs. I may be wrong on that...)

    What's great is the potential here for keeping organized notes/links!

    Good luck with this, Joy! :)

  2. What!? Blogger doesn't back up the blogs? Wow, that would suck if something happened to all my work. But, as for this wonderful idea, greatblog.

  4. Ann,

    I need to start saving my blog posts to my pc. I'd hate to lose this stuff.
