Tinker with Tools Tuesday: Ka Boom!

I’m so excited! Tonight I will be at the Charlotte Motor Speedway observing a Zambelli Fireworks show! I’ve been anticipating this for quite a while now and finally this is the night it will happen. I know I have said it before but here it is again: sometimes the best tool an author can have in his/her pocket is…

*drum roll and colorful confetti*

RESEARCH…plenty of it!

I can’t stress that enough. It is important to know what you are writing about. It is important to get it right. I like to get it right! Don’t you?

I’d like to think an author should be precisely like Curious George. Yup! That clever monkey knows what he is doing! Can anyone really ever be too curious? I don’t know about that one.

I plan to take the kids at a later time in the future.

Hopefully I’ll get a picture or two to share with you guys, if they allow it. I feel like I’m going undercover. In a way I am. I’ll be under cover by the darkness just before I hear that first Ka-Boom!  Bad joke? No? I’m laughing anyway.

Have you had any fun research adventures lately? Any that got you deep in trouble like Curious George? I’ve heard of some authors who actually go undercover for research. Have you? 


Sidenote: We just got a puppy and I need a few suggestions. I was thinking of naming the dog after literary figures or after an animal from a kidlit story? Any ideas? Anyone ever named pets this way?
