Hailey's Novel Diary – 3/28/17

The first step in Untitled 2017 Novel is research. This book will require some. Maybe a lot. It takes place in Los Angeles. I've been there, but I don't know the city backward and forward. The easiest way around that is to have a character that doesn't know the city. The stranger in a strange land is common for a reason. But I still have to know what I'm talking about.

Today, I looked up parks. Specifically, Griffith Park, Sepulveda Basin Recreation Area, Malibu Creek State Park, Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park and Stoney Point. It's amazing how much green space is in Los Angeles. I can't say that they'll all end up in the book, but at least one of them will play an important role.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
