I love to read historical novels. Its the feeling of stepping into another world that draws me. Another thing that draws me is a strong, plausible romance. The research for a different time period is quite daunting, however. My story is set in 1903. Right on the cusp of a new century.
There isn’t enough time in the day to research and to write, so I find I must divide my time accordingly. Yet, research isn’t limited to stories set one hundred years ago. I’ve found research is important in contemporary novels. If I only “wrote what I know” I wouldn’t be writing very much. What I know tends to get boring pretty fast, so, I’m always learning something new. What about you?
