The Spinning Room: Why Do You Write Colonial Fiction?
You have a passion for history. You long to live in bygone eras. Some of your favorite heroes include Abigail, Molly, Daniel, and the Georges (last names not required). You dream of garrison houses, Indian raids, privateers, patriots, meeting houses, powered wigs, cotillions, Caraco jackets, embroidered stomachers, herb gardens, baking by the hearth, and spinning wool. As you sit with your roller-gel pen or at your keyboard you imagine yourself writing with a goose feather quill pen.
But what is it exactly about 18th century America that stirs your soul?
Why do you write Colonial American fiction?
(Names: Abigail Adams, Molly Pitcher, Daniel Boone, George Washington and George Whitefield)
