I have exclaimed upon the benefits of research before and shall continue to do so.
It is the foundation of every piece that was ever written. Each and every person, writer, author, poet, playwright, etc. performed some type of research. Some research is experiential, some research is theoretical, and some research is purely academic, some research is for fun but it all goes into the mixing pot called your brain and comes out with pure wonderful delight.
Before you write one must research. That research is taking place from a very early age (say 1 or 2 years old I am not exactly when it starts I am just saying it is extremely early and may be earlier than 1, who knows) but we were born to research just to speak, walk, move, and everything else we do as humans.
Even now as you are reading this you are performing research even if you do not realize it.
All writing requires it and all writing would not exist if it were not for it.
By performing research you become the expert for the reader who will be researching as they read you.
"Research is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing." Wernher Von Braun (1912-1977)
