The Endless Double Check

When, oh when, will I ever stop "double checking" the historical facts within my novel? I suppose it is all for the good, but I find it ironic that I care so deeply to portray accurate motivation for the historic figures in my book, and then I throw completely fantastical elements into their long ago worlds.

    Those "fact checks" enrich your writing beyond the mere objective of accuracy. Your assimilation into the culture increases with research. Unless you invent a time machine, don’t stop your travels into England’s past by the only available conveyance–the written word.

    Thank you for your comment. I agree wholeheartedly. The characters must come alive within their own time and culture and that can only happen with my own immersion into their truths.
