Write it down.
Write down your thoughts during seasons of your life. We can only imagine how people suffered, endured, and overcame the results from warfare and disease that took lives of loved ones.
Historical fiction is written by perusing history books, personal diaries, and historical accounts of individuals who experienced horrific events. Therefore, we learn of the resilience and determination people had to withstand the ravages to their countries.
So write down your own feelings about the world around you. Keep a journal. Even if it’s for your personal encouragement, writing down your thoughts is therapeutic.
If you are not up to the challenge of writing, ask a family member or friend to write in a journal for you. Your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to come will appreciate that you thought of documenting your feelings, emotions, and experiences.
Research to Experience the Reality of an Era
Research for my historical fiction series was very important to me because I wanted to know, to feel, to experience the reality of the eras I was writing about. That’s why traveling to the places of my settings meant so much to me. I could walk in the vicinity of where my characters walked.
Strolling through flower gardens, I could sense the aroma of native flowers grown by gardeners in the area. Likewise, the weather would give me a feeling of what it would be like to live in the countryside or city of my character’s setting.
To My Reader
