You should take 20-60 minutes of your time to research the niche and subject you’re writing for. There are many places to look for information online but the best place to start is your favorite “ google” and article directory. Remember once you have started writing, it is very counter-productive and annoying to go back and research items you might need to write. Going back to a book or website to do some research in the middle of writing stops your momentum. So do the best when you done research.
