Worldbuilding: Everything Is Research

I've just come back from a lovely trip to Akumal, Mexico.  I'm now home and a little behind in all things, as is to be expected when one takes a trip.  Plus ArmadilloCon starts on Friday, so the crunch to get stuff done is on.

But it was a lovely trip: pristine beaches, Mayan ruins, a boat trip and snorkeling.  All amazing experiences.  And every bit of it, as far as I'm concerned, is worldbuilding research.  I've mentioned the idea of doing something set in an Atlantis-like setting, and snorkeling and diving have given some fuel to those ideas.  We'll see where it goes.

Back to work now.  I'll leave you with a video of a sea turtle.

Mr. Maresca, why do all of your characters wear vests?

It's the result of my world-building research!
