Reading for Reference

Hey Everyone,

I hope you’re all having a good Monday.

I wanted to talk about how reading books can be a good way to do research for your current work in progress.

As is stated by the subtitle of my blog, I write Regency Fantasy. For those who aren’t aware, that means it’s fantasy set in the time period of Jane Austen.

I’ve done a lot of research on the era but there have been a few things that I have been unable to find.

My Writing for Children and Adolescents professor taught us to read the kind of books that we write so I recently decided to reread the Regency books that I own.

Some are Regency Fantasy but most are just Regency but that is what I need at the moment since what I’m needing for reference is about balls and The Season.

I think I’ll find that in a Regency era book haha.

Reading books within your genre or similar genres can hep you to improve and to learn a lot.

Have fun!

WD
