Many writers hate research. Don't spend hours, days, months and even years researching a subject for a story or a novel. You want to write. In terms of research, creative writers should write what they know. Exclusive tracks written, which will not only sound left in his area of expertise as an expert in the topic to its readers, but will also prevent the long sessions of research. But if you want to write about pirates in the open sea, then get ready to do some research. Although only a few pirates, read documentary films and some books, you need to know what they are talking about.
If you want to write about Thailand, then the best possible research, sees its for you and experience you see things as accurately as your character. Taste of food, sightseeing, mingle with the locals and live there. If you are writing a historical novel or a futuristic novel, not trip any writer of course in fact time. However, the museums and fields of space and meeting with university teachers is a great place to start! To be a successful creative writers need to absorb information like a sponge. Your research to personally visit the configuration and the experience of realism and details about his novel will add a fresh perspective, that otherwise would escape to their conscience. They have everything you need to have the opportunity to personally experience the situation that after making its history.
The Internet is an excellent resource. If you are writing a story that takes place in Japan, there are many websites where you can interact with expatriates. Skype, email and Facebook helps you keep in touch. If you're going to write about the wildlife in Africa, there are some Web sites to view the cams in the fauna of the National Park and protect them from poachers conservation have been reserved. Thus while may not trip you make character in real life makes, still get on the Internet, as close as you can use. Research has never been easier.
Another resource is the other reading books. Libraries visit authors, who may have access to the Internet, with a budget set and not been able to afford computers or home where the computer to write freely and a large amount of information in a never-ending source of all books are available!
Take travel books, as the author of distant places. You can dream about the most exotic places, where! Non-fiction / essay writing memories can give a good idea of what life was really for those who traveled and fiction can give you that extra touch of creativity.
If you still have difficulties, the library is a little too much or has are not in the books that you need, you not the means to travel to themselves and it must not have access to a computer or Internet, in your own home you can meet with groups. A local expert, perhaps, or a party which has recently returned from his last expedition. Contact with the local newspaper or are in get the directories that you walk in the right direction. However, you choose to do your research, you add this little information about the senses (touch, sight, sound, taste, smell), get your creative writing, something to give advantage.
