Writing on WRiting
Whether you're already a writer or thinking about embracing your muse, you may be interested in my thoughts on plotting or researching historical fiction. See what you think below!
In this article, I explore two popular ways writers approach their work: as a plotter (someone who has a careful plan ahead of their writing), or as a pantser (someone who writes by the seat of his or her pants, allowing the muse to guide their writing wherever it goes). I'm neither...and both!
In this article, I share some tools and tips for those writers who wish to take on historical fiction, as I have. I offer insights into my own research process and share my feelings about how writing and research can feed the same impulse of discovery.
