Double Standards

I do a lot of research. At times, I’m pretty sure I write novels just so I can buy books that interest me. The hubbinator would agree:D

I love how the smallest detail can add dimension and layers in a story.

But then I started researching for myself not my stories. And suddenly those little details were outdated and I felt as if I was wasting my time reading books that were nearly 40 years old. It was a health book on stress and the damage it does to the body. It was ground breaking research at the time.

And it is outdated.

The foundations are there; the principles hold true even today and gobs of research later. But…. But the details were off enough to cause alarm bells to jangle in my head.

So my brain switched gears, and now the research isn’t for me, but about a book. A dystopian, alternative America series centered on the health care system. Which is fine. Research is research. But now I have to find a more modern, updated version for me. One that can stay on this side of the line inside my head. Too bad I think that line is made of yarn the cats play with:D

Until next time.
