I’m currently working on a scrapbook for my Concept Development class, where I’m looking at the research I’ve done for my book. It’s not the most imaginative idea, but I’m having a lot of fun making this thing.

I have to say, it’s kind of heartening and terrifying at the same time. It’s really great to see what I’ve done towards my book, to pull it all together in one place, it actually validates that all this pottering around I’ve been doing is useful research. It’s stuff that’s informing my idea and strengthening my story.

It’s terrifying though, looking at this lame little scrapbook… While my idea’s becoming rounded and more solid as I go, I also have to think, “How the hell do I make a book from this!?”.

I’m glad I’ve been given this assignment though. Scrapbooking’s fun.

How do you organise your research?
