RESEARCHMAIN
Can you swim safely in the Nile River without getting eaten by Crocodiles? How long would a trip to Mars take for a manned space craft? What did women wear in Edwardian England?

Whether you write fiction or nonfiction you are constantly finding yourself answering research questions such as these. A good writer is a good researcher. This is obvious for nonfiction writers, but to write believable fiction you need to be accurate when your plot intersects with factual material.
