Warning!

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.
