How much time do you spend on research?

How much time do you spend on research?

It really depends on the type of novel, I think. I wrote a novella last year that required not an ounce of research because I set it in a non-existent country in a non-existent era. A month is not really a long time to research for a genre like historical fiction, but it's a fair amount of time to research for something like a murder mystery (unless you're extremely concerned with forensics, in which case you'll want to spend quite some time studying up on that) or a romance. If your novel is not really research-oriented (i.e. not historical fiction or about science or whatever), then you can probably take it as it comes.

For my part, I've been researching for four or five months off and on, but I'm writing a novel about artists taking place in Nazi I have a lot on my plate.

I have personally elected not to "just start writing & deal with research as it comes". The reason is hard to explain exactly, but it's sort of like this: In the process of making up my plot, I came up with a variety of character stories. My first character was going to have suffered polio as a child, my second was going to have worked in a factory in 1920s Germany after the death of his father, and my third was going to be a homosexual individual living in a hostile society. The entire story was going to be about government censorship and blacklisting. However, this term, I'm taking a class about Cold War American literature, and I made a peculiar discovery: every single one of the back stories seemed to be based on 50s America. I was following what my personal idea of "old-fashioned" was, and for some reason, that vision is the spitting image of Cold War America, probably courtesy of old movies and novels. I had completely failed to grasp the mindset of Nazi Germany. Thus, I elected to start from scratch. I'm now reading a book called Inside Nazi Germany and I tend to look at A Concise History of the Third Reich next. From there, I think I'll read about Kristallnacht specifically, although there's a lot of potential.

I know your eyes probably glazed over reading that, but my point is that you have to be careful of coming up with whole plots not based on your research, especially if the setting is radically different from where you live.

Vision issues.........?

Vision issues.........?

The reason for your worsened vision is some type of disease, but it might not be diabetes. Diabetes actually has several other much more pronounced symptoms (rapid weight loss; constant cramps in your muscles; extreme hunger, thirst and fatigue), so you would have most likely noticed if you are developing these.

It's good that you are getting a blood test, but you should rather see your eye doctor again. (It may also be that the most recent prescription given to you was wrong and your eyes have simply been struggling to compensate for that.)
