Holding History in Your Hands
by Anita Mae Draper
This is my first post under our new theme days. I picked Historical because I'm a history nut. It also explains why I write Historical Romance. Actually, I'm in the final chapters of my inspirational western, Emma's Outlaw and I'm very pressed for time and was hoping you'd forgive me for re-posting something I used on another blog awhile back. (And if by chance, you were one of the very few individuals who read this post, I've changed the questions at the end just for you.)
I’d like to show you some of the items I keep on my desk for inspiration while I’m writing. These items are specifically for my current historical, Emma’s Outlaw. When I hold them in my hands and let my fingers slide over them, I feel like I’m holding a piece of history. Well, I guess I actually am!
