Research Junky Stef sez: Ooh shiny!

[info - community] leftoverresearchquarterly: An awesome idea for information magpies and fiction writers. I hope it gathers many contributions.

From the profile:
We want to know all about all the cool stuff you found researching your latest piece of fiction, especially the stuff that didn't get used in the end because the subplot it was going to support got dropped.
Thanks [info - personal] snippy!

That's awesome. I might have some stuff to throw their way from my occasional forays into science-writing.

That is cool. The same thing happens to me while researching and interviewing for journalistic articles- many times some odd-but-interesting tidbits don't make it in because they don't fit the angle or flow of the story. But they're often really fascinating.

Shiny indeed. And probably better than trying to shoehorn the stuff in. Every X months somebody should try and write something that uses as many of the bits as possible...

I might just take that on as a challenge :-)
