Today I forced myself from my other work to NaNo prep (or perhaps it was the other way around) and had a look into political systems.
My world is based on political strife. I have learned so much about it this morning and have a far better idea about it than before. In fact, I think I would like to open with a scene to reflect the pathetic police force and the reign of gangs in my world. I did a lot of looking into the Thailand situation that is currently going on and it is very interesting. I am filled with excitement, now knowing where and how my characters live. I can feel myself dipping into a new way of thinking (theirs) and it is very exciting!
I have to have a look into gangs a bit more to try and understand how that would work. Another day I think.
Is anybody else looking into the setting of their stories?
