Hilary Mantel's approach to research

"Question every historical fact you think you know, 
and never take the word of a single source."

"Don't show off. Your reader only needs to know 
about one tenth of what you know. 
Depth of research gives the writer confidence 
and suppleness, but doesn't need to be 
demonstrated on every page."

from The Royal Society of Literature Review 2012 

Coming later by me: the apostrophe
and how to position it correctly.
