Helping Lone Wolf Research

Our research of the Oklahoma City Bombing mystery continues. We're hoping concerned Americans (just like you) will send us relevant information, however tangential, of this tragic event. Material received can be held in strict anonymity at submitter's request. (Wendy S. Painting, Ph.D.)

Types of Creative Writing I offer

Investigative research

"Research is defined as human activity based on intellectual application in the investigation of matter. The primary aim for applied research is discovering, interpreting, and the development of methods and systems for the advancement of human knowledge on a wide variety of scientific matters of our world and the universe. Research can use the scientific method, but need not do so. Research is when you search for stuff on the net, and you write it down in a book." -


"An exchange of views in an attempt to reach a decision: conference, counsel, deliberation, parley."

About oral history

"Oral history is the collection and study of historical information about individuals, families, important events, or everyday life using audiotapes, videotapes, or transcriptions of planned interviews. These interviews are conducted with people who participated in or observed past events and whose memories and perceptions of these are to be preserved as an oral record for future generations. Oral history strives to obtain information from different perspectives and most of these cannot be found in written sources. Oral history also refers to information gathered in this manner and to a written work (published or unpublished) based on such data, often preserved in archives and large libraries." -

Biographical writing

"Biographies analyze and interpret the events in a person's life. They try to find connections, explain the meaning of unexpected actions or mysteries, and make arguments about the significance of the person's accomplishments or life activities. Biographies are usually about famous, or infamous people, but a biography of an ordinary person can tell us a lot about a particular time and place. They are often about historical figures, but they can also be about people still living."(-
