I've got a question for all you wuxia writers out there; I've been checking out the story vault and there're a lot of cool stories. I'm wondering if you guys do any research before planning out your stories, or if you're doing them based on imagination and already published wuda stories. As in, do you bother establishing a dynasty, style of speech, clothing/hairtyles, part of the country, etc, or do you just take a plot and run with it, and kind of make up a China for your plot? Also, did you decide the ending from the very beginning, or make it up as you went along? I'm curious, because I'm trying a story out and I'm hoping for some tips from people who've already finished their wuxia stories!
Thanks; I appreciate it!
