Researching a Short Story

Published by teacherayala in the blog teacherayala's blog. Views: 59

So far, my protagonist has changed into a completely different person. (Too bad, because I really liked the other protagonist's name.) I have been researching people who are involved in a political campaign. I've also tried to research what kinds of crimes take place in a political campaign, and have completely changed my scenario. The only thing I wish I could do is actually work within a political campaign or even visit one just to see what the energy is like, what the people are like who work on a political campaign and how they handle a particular crisis. I've been doing my best to contact people via Twitter or via the www just to see if I can understand this world a little better.

My research is taking much longer than I expected, and my synopsis has entirely changed. It's still coming together because there are so many different aspects of this setting that I still don't understand. I don't want to have to ditch the story because the way people behave simply doesn't make any sense.
