Now that I’ve got your attention, I wanted you to know that if you’re writing a story that has a real person in it, and you’re as true to history as you can get, it is the hardest thing you will ever do.  You have to research everyone involved to make sure that you have the person in the right place at the right time, or you will have to scrap the scene (which really isn’t fun at all).

What I mean is that writing anything that’s historical in nature and trying to remain true is the hardest thing you will ever do.  I only hope that in the end I will do justice to the men and women I’m writing about.

  1. Have to agree with you. Having a reincarnated character literally time travel and tip toe in the background has been the most difficult thing to write…. and the most rewarding believe it or not…

      1. Well, my writing is going to slow down for a time. I’ve got 7 weeks of school left and there is TESTING… and then, if you’ve been keeping up, you know that someone from my waaaaaaay back past has found me and we’re looking to see if that old spark is still there!!!!
