Write first, research later

First, write the story and then research. Don’t get bogged down in unnecessary description. Facts for fact’s sake bore readers. All that is needed is the unobtrusive inclusion of a few authentic facts. There is no need to be an expert. Find out information that is relevant to the plot already planned.

Use research to illuminate characters and to advance the plot, otherwise leave it out.
