I've been having the pleasure of listening to the wisdom of wonderful historical fiction writers (and a fabulous agent) all week at Highlights and just had to share a few of these gems with you!
Keep in mind - these work for historical fiction AND many other genres!
"It doesn't matter how great the fact is, if the fact doesn't enhance the story." Kirby Larson
"Authentic characters are achieved when the author has become invisible." Linda Pratt
"Thou shall not repeat falsehoods. (Be accurate!)" Tracy Barrett
