#Research, research, research!

While writing, we authors do a lot of research in order to make sure the information is correct. The thing is, it seems like the research never ends! Every time we turn around it seems like there is even more information than there was two seconds ago. I am currently in the process of writing a WWII historical fiction piece and as it is a very big part of heart I want everything pertaining to the war to be correct. I have buried myself in papers, websites, books, and movies to make sure I have everything I need.

I was on YouTube earlier, completely not thinking about my book or the war, when I found a video about the top ten movies about WWII. Of course I had to check it out, and sadly, most of them I have yet to see. Yes Schindler’s List is first on the list, and everyone has seen The Piano or The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas, but what about In the Darkness? It tells the true story of Leopold Socha, a thief, who saved Jews by moving them through the sewers. This is based on a true story, yet not many people I know of have seen it.
