Goodreads asked Nicole Wilson:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Nicole Wilson Everything is research!

I can binge watch TV shows and legitimately be learning about something that show does well (i.e. Castle = crime scenes; NYPD; investigations). That may sound like an excuse to binge watch TV shows (and it sort of is), but there are things to learn from TV shows. They've done some research of their own, and they have a bigger budget and consultants that I don't have!

Everything also includes people-watching (learning how people interact), reading books I enjoy (learning how the pros do it), and participating in fun activities (research for a character that might do the same thing).
