    Being a writer means that you've probably picked up a lot of random trivia that you'd have never known otherwise. What are some of the weird things you've learned from your writing research?

    I learned about a Welsh wedding tradition in the 1800s where, after the ceremony, the women would go to the bride's house and lay booby traps for the groomsmen to get past. Once they managed to get past them all, they would have to perform various skills for the women. Then, they basically had a poetry/singing battle with one another and only once the men won did they relinquish the bride to them and she was taken back to her husband.
