For Writers: Researching People

diverse-crowd

Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Ryane Chatman:

Do you talk to people to get a feel for a certain personality trait? Also how do you go about cultural research?

It’s a great question. As writers, we often write stories about characters different from ourselves, sometimes vastly different. This can be someone who is aggressive where we are shy, or someone who is sweet and young while we are bitter and old (we are writers, after all *grin).

Or it could be someone from an entirely different culture.

So how do you get the details right?
