I've read the work ethics of numerous writers.One of the most consistent qualities they shared was researching asmuch as they could to legitimize their characters, and situations. These things come with a price- the TIME it takes to b thorough! In the end they are always glad they chose to get more enlightenment on what they're writing about. So I'd suggest you do some reseach on as much as time will permit you to,it will only help.
