I know you always have a choice. Or so they say.
I wonder if anyone has been more or less forced or pushed into the literature world?
Since they may have exceeded all their other options to support themselves and earn an income?

I am not ashamed to admit that I'm fascinated with the European monarchies. That does not mean I am a supporter of monarchies over republics. I support democracy, equality and feminism.

I don't know if anyone else can relate but what was it that prompted you to begin writing?
And what was it that made you interested into pursuing a professional writing career?

Do you have a certain type of environment you always include or base your fiction on?
Do you prefer outdoors or indooor and different types of buildings? Like mansions, estates, castles or farms

Curious to know what you think the most common main plots for historical fiction is ?
Obviously I assume it would revolve around war and liberation. I'm meaning more specifically though.Like a special time period or war.

Even though I'm a European, I must say that I'm extremely interested in both British and American history. If you would ask me to choose one oor the other, I wouldn't be able to.
I'm very inspired by both, especially the wars(being born and raised into a European country who hasn't been invloved in direct for over 200 years or so.) I can't help it if I'm fascinated by wars in particular.
Maybe I'm weird I don't know.

Thinking about including the following terms in my historicalfiction.
Lord Dunmore's Ethiopian regiment
Would that be doable ?

I sort of know what theme my plot will have and (at this point) also some of my subplots...
I would like to make a cast of at least thirteen characters. Is it doable or not? Can't really say why I'd like thirteen.. there's thought behind the number though...
If you don't know by now my current project is an historical romance story.Of course there would be one or two main characters. Possibly three but no more.

If I only could decide what all my characters should be named (surname and personal name) for both male and females. But I can't. I still struggle with it.
I haven't decided if I will use historical figures, obscure historical figures or fictional historical figures. Until that is decided I will be slightly indecisive...
Correction, as of this week I'm trying to come up with…Continue

Is the success of historical fiction predetermined by the existance of (well-known) historical figures or not?
What if I don't want to make George III a part of my story ? If I decide to have none will my fiction be a failure? Apprehensive about including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson or even Henry Knox...
What if I want to possibly tell my story from more obscure historical figures...?
Should I abandon that idea and opt for using original…Continue

Hand on heart- be honest!
Do you enjoy reading fiction in the same genre that you write in ?
I have to admit I personally love writing historical fiction but I don't read as much historical fiction that I could or probably should...
Although some historical figures really interests me -more than others I might add.
Should I feel guilty or not for this...

From my Mirth & Meaning blog posted December 15, 2015.
Last year I offered a list of 10 wonderful fiction titles to recommend. The books weren’t new from 2014, just memorable and worthwhile books, some written by lesser known authors who deserved greater visibility. I was happy to…Continue
