Whilst its usually the worst day of the week, I couldn’t be happier. This week in my reading life, I have discovered two amazing things…
Firstly, I have a new Favourite book. You know that moment when you are about 1/4 of a book and you just smile cause you know that this book is ‘THE ONE’
I was reading The Bride by Julia Garwood, and I was about 70ish pages in, and I thought... I could write my own Historical Novel.
I’ve been toying with the idea of writing my own novel for a while, but my true love for 20-something years has been history. I’ve been reading up about it, and I have heard you need to research a hell of a lot to make it believable and accurate. I am up for the challenge.
From the advice I’ve found research is the key to writing an accurate novel. So I’ve started to research my chosen time period – Tudor Times England; Court life. I’m not sure if I want to base it on a courtier, or a servant yet. Perhaps, I’ll even set it in Wales or Scotland yet. But I am so excited.
