Writers block? Or researcher’s block? How to NOT waste your time while writing your historical novel

Complete your novel — fast than ever — by utilising handpicked historical materials.

 

Dr. Barbara Ellermeier, historian, curates the resource library for authors who write biographies, historical novels or historical fiction

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 of your historical novel?

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

Every week: Authentic details that can be easily transformed into dialogues, conflicts and scenes.

* Why isn’t there a novel about …?  

An idea for a topic, a setting or a conflict. Let’s uncover it and write a scene – or a novel.

Do you need to get unstuck, ideas to write about, and start writing right away?

Then let me challenge you.
