I think setting is very important. I like to feel as though I'm there with the characters. I learned so much about settings during WW2 while research for my novel. I only hope I translated that into my manuscript. Blessings
As a Civil War reenactor, I've gotten a taste of what life was like for a 1860's soldier or female civilian. Participating in a living history is excellent research and helps when writing about the time period. You get the real feel when you are in the bubble.
Research is always important to help get a feel for the setting. I agree with Loree; living history is a great way to do it.Happy weekend!
Hi Jan - Yes, I agree. An authentic setting brings a story to life.Hi Loree - Now, that's a great way to get a flavor for history! Colonial Williamsburg comes to mind plus other historical areas.Hi Karen - Maybe we should take a temporary job at a historical venue. :)Blessings,Susan
Love Jaime. She's the sweetest, besides you that is..... :O)
Hi, Susan. I like to hang out in local historical museums and also read family history stories on genealogy blogs. I find great ideas there for both settings and characters.Blessings,Jean
Hi Diane - I agree about Jaime. :)Hi Jean - I never thought of reading genealogy blogs. Great idea.Blessings,Susan
Hi, Susan:I'm with Jean--I like to hang out at historical museums to get a taste of setting. I also read biographies to see the link between setting and mindset. Biography is one of my favorite genres. Be well, my friend...
