Just a little light reading so I can  add in the occasional off-hand comment or knowledgable sentence about a surgical procedure that will happen—if it happens, because that’s sort of the crux of the story—off-page. 

I may be overthinking things.

But I’m also thinking the next book is gonna be about a teenage wereduck so I can do my waterfowl research in the children’s section.

What’s that strangest place your research has taken you?

    • It sounds like a sure cure for insomnia, but all joking aside, I’m taking lots of notes! Bone marrow transplants are both simpler and more complex than I thought . . .

      Wereducks seem like such a simple people . . . but knowing me, I’ll end up reading a thesis on mallard sociology or something. XD

    • There was a display of tiny, gorgeous, deadly slippers at the museum last month . . . my kids didn’t know why I was shuddering a the “doll shoes.”

  1. tephrostratigraphy….and pop songs used in commercials.

    I get carried away with research sometimes and end up far afield of my original thought. But I always learn more than I knew before.

    • I’m impressed! The only string theory I know involves knitting needles.

      I’m thinking the wereduck is the only prey were in a family of predators . . . but he’s captain of the swim team.

Talk to me!
