The things we research for our craft…

In order to write something as accurately as possible – or just to be better informed for a character – we as writers do this thing called R-E-S-E-A-R-C-H.

In the course of my writing career/hobby I have researched some pretty weird things. For example, in the last twelve months my top ten are:

  1. Breastfeeding
  2. Wet Nurses
  3. Medieval dildos
  4. Natural lubricants
  5. Torture devices
  6. OCD and other psychological disorders
  7. NYU
  8. Various sex toys
  9. Gaelic language
  10. Rome

Since about 4 or 5 of those are sex related you might have guessed that half my writing tends to be smutty. It is plot centred smut, I swears! >_>

It makes me wonder what wiki searches and questionable websites have you ended up on for the sake of your writing? How odd and disturbing a writers browser history must be!
