Novel Research

Last weekend, Cynthia and I went down to Kingsville for research on my WIP. We took this great four hour tour of the King Ranch and explored downtown Kingsville, including the King Ranch Museum. It was great fun, and we saw a lot. Invaluable stuff, for the WIP. Then we went up to Corpus and explored the Aquarium, but decided it was too hot and windy to go up on the U.S.S. Lexington.

So I came back energized, full of all sorts of research info I can plug into the new novel. First,though, Cyn and I have a couple of speaking gigs. Tomorrow night, I am giving a keynote for the Texas State Reading Association Summer Leadership Conference. Then, Saturday, Cyn and I are doing a breakout at the Writers' League of Texas Agents and Editors Conference.

Incidentally, don't you love the way the "ou" in "four hour tour" can be pronounced three ways?

We did the U.S.S. Lexington tour, and it was great! Claustrophobic, acrophobic, and my wife had a good laugh at me because there were places that I just refused to go.
