Goodreads asked K.P. Merriweather:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

K.P. Merriweather Read, research and study. Really get the feel of your characters the town and the universe you create. Depending on the story, I visit the area I'm writing about or study the country and its history customs etc. I study people, how they dress and talk, listen to coversations around me. I read books on psychology, fashion and history. It's a lot of note taking but those small details come together to make the universe and its inhabitants real as if you could visit and meet those people in real life.
