Nanowrimo: Writer’s block? Or researcher’s block? How to avoid wasting time, when writing your historical novel


Hello, I am Dr. Barbara Ellermeier, historical advisor to authors and publishers. 

We know that our research materials don’t just fall into our laps … and the best historial details usually aren’t listed in Wikipedia. But when our local librarian overwhelms us, when the expert we’ve emailed doesn’t answer, and when browsing Pinterest leaves us even more confused, we end up fearing that we’re wasting too much time on research.


Because these 50,000 words during the 30 days of November?

They don’t write themselves. 


In my weekly writing prompts, you’ll get handpicked historical information that authors have used to furnish their books with in-depth historical details without having to spend ages finding them. Including: The best historical resources I know. 

Receive 3 writing prompts, one per day.
One idea to write about + selected background information.

Start writing about a new time and topic in under an hour. 


Receive a new writing prompt from a historical location 1x per week.
