Research Trips

I’m reading through Creativity Inc by Ed Catmull. I’ve reached a section of the book that talks about creating as a group. And one of the section titles is called Research Trips.

Writers! Are you taking research trips?!

This makes me laugh hard and get excited because the adventures are endless here. I chuckle because I’m in the Sci-Fi Fantasy part of my book. I can think of places I can visit still but how wild would it be to visit the fantasy world we create in our novels.

Well, I mean as creatives we can visit that world regularly and should. Visualization is one of the most important parts of writing and creating. That’s another post for another day.

Back to the point Research Trips

One place I just realized I could go for a research trip is a marina. And we have a great place not too far from us that has some great views and some great marinas.

Where would you go if you could go anywhere for a research trip?

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
