But I find doing research is taking away from my actual writing. I'm stuck in this infinite cycle:
- Can't work on the story until outline is written
- Can't write outline until more research is done
- Can't stop doing research; too much to know!
- Stop doing research and write already...
- Begin loop again
At this point, I could write a nonfiction with all the research I've done. But I don't want to do that. I want to write my story. The one that's almost fully hatched in my brain, minus silly little details such as, oh I don't know, the actual story.
I currently have four browser windows open with research material. When those are read through, no more. I should have more then plenty of information. Thankfully, I've been keeping wonderful research notes, so I don't need to worry about cataloging all of that. Then, it's out line time, baby.
