The Chinese New Year celebrations are upon us here in Beijing and it feels like the quiet before the storm today. I thought I’d take this opportunity to get in some research for some upcoming projects I have in mind for 2012.
The new year, whether the western or Chinese, always feels like a good time to think about new story ideas and reflect on what’s happened the previous year.
I’m currently planning new chapters for my work exploring environmental issues in Asia. Research always begins with reading for me and I always make sure I have time to sit down and take in new information on the topics I’m interested in. Pictured are some ‘light’ reading material that I am using for research and inspiration today.
Today, is for quiet reading. Tomorrow, as the year of the dragon arrives, the explosions begin!
