I am going to humiliate myself in public….. All in the name of book research, of course. 😉
Yep, I’m going to play a round of golf!
Haha, thing is… I’ve never played golf. I’ve never even been on a golf course. — I’ve played putt-putt, like the little kid version of golf you play on vacation with the whole family, and even then all I did was humiliate myself. Lol! — Because I can’t even play that! (I have even been known to pick the ball up & place it into the hole a time or two… Yep, that’s right, I super cheat.)
There are some important golfing scenes in my book, so I have no choice but to get out there and play some golf.
— 3 things. —
Thing 1: It will probably be the worst golfing anyone has ever seen, no seriously.. it will be 😉 , but it’s still exciting & fun because it’s a new adventure. It’s something I’ve never experienced & to be honest, never wanted too. — But even doing something that will embarrass you to no end, is fun when you know you’ll have a good time with good people & make new memories. — (Yes, my husband is likely to record this sporting disaster & share it with everyone, haha, but I can’t say that I’d blame him.. 😉 )
Thing 2: This sort of research is so much fun! The kind where you can actually get out & experience what you are trying to put into words…. it just makes things that much more exciting. It makes writing about it more exciting. — Plus, there is nothing quite like being able to say, “Who me? Oh, I’m a writer & I’m doing some book research.” — Word!
Thing 3: When I’m doing research… I’m making progress, and progress is always good! 🙂
So sometime in the next couple of weeks I’m going golfing. — I will be sure to let you guys know how it goes. 🙂
