Do you suffer from research paralysis? Are you intimidated by huge research projects in unfamiliar time periods, or one where there is an impossible amount of material to choose from? In this session, the author of widely acclaimed Donner Party retelling The Hunger (and recently published WWII novel The Fervor) explains how she applies research methods from her 30-year career as an analyst for CIA and RAND to historical fiction. Topics will include properly scoping research projects so you don’t end up going down rabbit holes, determining confidence in your sources, efficient notetaking, and managing your research output.
