Accuracy Vs Authenticity: 5 Tips For Writing Immersive Historical Fiction | The Creative Penn

The trick is to understand the distinction between authenticity and accuracy. Yes – historical fiction readers want to be immersed into an authentic world. In other words, a world that feels accurate. Very often, this means creating a historically accurate depiction. But, when accuracy becomes alienating or confusing – or when it counterintuitively detracts from the feeling of authenticity – you’ll have no choice but to fictionalise the past. via Accuracy Vs Authenticity: 5 Tips For Writing Immersive Historical Fiction | The Creative Penn Original link

The Imposters of Badington Bay

I've a new short story on Amazon: The Imposters of Badington Bay


In May, my sister and I took a trip to Michigan. It was a lot of fun. We actually started in Chicago. I had never been there before and found it to be an interesting city. Lots of museums. Our next stop was Holland, MI for the tulip festival - beautiful flowers. The featured destination was to be Mackinac island. We had wanted to see it for years. We had a good time, but the weather was cold (in the 30s) and raining. The town was quaint and postcard picturesque. Our other stops included Frankenmuth and Dearborn. All-in-all a pleasant, easy vacation. Original link

I’d think you’re trying to seduce me

If you can not see this chirbit, listen to it here He stopped at the nearest grocery store to buy fresh strawberries. Their smell was arousing. It stopped him from thinking about Bull, Mr. Armstrong, and the cops. In place of these thoughts, he recalled the time he and his sweetheart had prepared dinner, just a few days ago. Their kiss had lasted no more than a minute, a lingering touch of his lips to hers, before he had eased away.  How Ash knew he would be coming home for breakfast he had no idea. He didn’t know it himself, until crossing the threshold. But there she was, setting two plates on the kitchen table.  The mouthwatering smell of strawberries started perme...

Discussing mummy resurrection practices on the devil’s radio

One of the things that will never cease to surprise me about living in a small community, is the way in which news and (mostly) gossip travel fast. Maybe that’s the reason why you can’t get high-speed internet connections here: they are superfluous, as gossip travels faster than your average fiberoptic cable, and does not need servers of platforms except for the bench outside of the local bar, and the doctor’s waiting room. Ever since our father died, my brother and I have been the subject of much speculation and possibly more gossip. To give you an example, our uncle, that never visited us here in the countryside when our dad was still alive, after being at the funeral and coming to visit u...

Weekend Reads: “Love Saves the Day”

Love Saves the Day
Hi, everyone. As you know from yesterday’s post, it was a tough day. It’s never easy to say goodbye to a beloved pet.

Them's Fightin' Words!

Hey Everyone, Today's post is more in what I'm sure will be an ongoing diatribe about the anti-women movement in this country. I've got a few more thoughts to share on the subject, so get ready because I'm not pulling any punches. First, I'd just like to point out something that should be obvious about all the anti-women legislation being pushed by the Christian Taliban, right now. We do not allow government co-option of people's bodies for the benefit of others except in the case of pregnancy. A healthy adult donor can donate enough blood to potentially save the life of someone suffering from blood loss in a single donation. The blood they donate will be replaced in its entirety by their bo...
