This week’s Wordbound prompt is: What’s something you’ve always considered writing but haven’t yet?
I’ve always wanted to write historical fiction, but I’ve never written any. I feel like there would be a lot of pressure to make it historically accurate and it would involve so much research to get it right. Any writing is going to involve at least a little research, but writing something based on history would involve a lot more research than I’ve done for other things I’ve written. I usually prefer to create my own world where I can make up the rules. But I think I would like to write something historical, especially about people who haven’t gotten as much attention as they should have. It’s still technically fiction, but I would want it to be as accurate to the time period as possible.
I think I’ll start with reading more historical fiction and biographies, and maybe someday I’ll actually pick something to write about and put in the effort to do the research and write the story.
Writing Goal Updates
I didn’t do much writing this week, but I started to work on some short stories that I’ve been neglecting and I’m planning on working on my big second draft after I finish this. My goal is to finish it by NaNoWriMo so I can start off November with a new story.
