I’m a writer that loves to research. I can spend all day ferreting out facts and details. Like most introverts (and by ‘introvert’, I mean ‘introvert‘, not quiet, shy or retiring. I am none of those things. Read more on introversion and extraversion) I like to drill deep below the surface of a knowledge domain. So that means I can never tell how much research is enough. It seems I’m good at getting caught up in the details instead of getting on with it.

  1. Much the same for me, though I don’t often set out to research a piece I have already chosen to write. Rather, I become interested in a topic, and a piece rises out of the research.


  2. Yeah, I’m the other way around– I read about some obscure fact and then start imagining what could be going on around it.
