- Person: All you did was read books this weekend...
- Me: No. I fought a seven monsters, destroyed a corrupt government, rode a dragon, went through intense emotional pain, got some kick ass super powers, went back in time, joined a crime group and stole a shit ton of money, became the ruler of a nation, entered a dystopian army, was on the run, discovered a few supernatural creatures, traveled the world, made ten new best friends and fell in love with five different people...what did you do this weekend?
Do you know of any resources for "what it's like to live in X environment?" I'm trying to write about a character living in a village in a desert. I've checked your "research" and "resources" tags and didn't find anything that I could use. My google research gives me things like "facts about deserts/tundras/rainforests" but these are more trivia facts instead of how a person has to adjust their life to use/deal with their environment. I want to read about the human experience of living there.
