It’s official. You can learn how to do anything on YouTube.
I learned how to make the best tortillas EVER from watching this video.
My son swears by these stop-motion tutorials from FancyPants. (Love that name!!)
And just this week my husband learned to play Iron Man from a YouTube video. Rock on, babe!
When it comes to research, Google and You Tube are a writer’s friends.
To be perfectly honest, I was equal parts thrilled and horrified. I mean, if you write the kind of books where a character needs to break into someone’s house, this will certainly make your scenes a lot more believable. But, oh man, do you have any idea how easily you can break into a hotel room? With a rubber band? Yikes!
Then there’s the comical warning on the screen that says, “Only pick your own locks–or you could wind up in a lot of trouble.” Am I the only one who’s not really convinced that aspiring criminals aren’t learning a thing or two from YouTube?
How far are YOU willing to go to research your writing projects?
