Do you find the more you research about what you're writing to be more helpful??? And what sources do you decide when researching and how far do you go with the research? I find it better to know enough information I need when lets say writing about a certain event in my story, a type of character and the places in your story. Personally, I like to get in the minds fo each of my characters. I pretend to be them(like an actor does). I sometimes will even explain to myself everything the character has been there, as if I have been through it. All their failures, victories, weakness, strength as well as the emotional side of the character. I find the more information you have the better. Now, if doing fictional events or places, that would be a little hard, but I think with a little imagination and if I try to create the event as visual as possible, it helps more. Does anyone agree with this or have anything to add???
