I've copied and pasted my research into a Word document. Now I have to figure out how to apply the research. Do I take the research I've come up with, and keep it as part of the manuscript itself, or do I rewrite every little bit of it? Is there one, fail safe way to do this, one method that is to never be neglected, lest I run the risk of writing a sloppy novel that makes it evident that I don't know what I am talking about? Or can I choose one from a select number of ways to go about this?
