Join National Ambassador for Young People's Literature Gene Luen Yang each month at Book Riot for the Creativity in Progress series, where he takes us inside the process of writing and illustrating comics!In his latest post, Yang explores the three types of research (as defined by screenwriter Robert McKee): memory, imagination, and book research. Yang has drawn on each of these techniques in his effort to create engaging and believable worlds.
Research is now one of my favorite parts of my process. I feel that it improves not just the quality of my stories, but also the quality of my life. After all, research is all about learning, and what’s more fun than learning? (Book Riot)
