It’s so much easier with the Internet. My fiction writing doesn’t require a lot of research but it does require some. In my youth I would be visiting the library, checking out books and thumbing through Brittanica, Collier’s, and World Book encyclopedia’s. Of course, I wasn’t doing serious research, just building a bibliography and paraphrasing from the reference books in order to complete some forgettable paper for school. Those days are gone. The Internet is here and I’m glad.
