RESEARCH – WESTERN HISTORY (and more!)
Depending on what I'm writing, I usually google something and I chase down the links from there
Other highly recommended sites:
Deb Lawson's page
This is colonial Williamsburg and it's awesome. Covers the entire life.
Other great tips:
I read a lot of thesis papers.
I also keep an atlas handy to look at maps of the areas I'm writing about to get an idea of the terrain and the process of getting from one place to the other.
Recently, I’ve researched Indian Herbal medicine, and also language.
Most of the places I've written about I've actually been to.
