Re-Writing your #History – #Writing (and Life) Advice from April Thompson

I love this TED Talk! The opening solo bit from Liberty City is a powerful message about telling your own story and not letting others limits, limit you. Something that isn’t easy. The world is filled with “Boundaries, shoulds, woulds, and supposed tos…”  The only real boundary is the breadth and scope of  your imagination.  Now THAT is something to remember.  Check it out and let us know what you think.

The only real limitation is the breadth and scope of  your imagination.

Video Saturday – Advice to Writers – Philippa Gregory

Today is author Philippa Gregory. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t read her novel, The Other Boleyn Girl or other historical novels but I fell in love with the film.  She has written novels set in several different historical periods – the bestselling Lacey trilogy — Wideacre, which is a story about the love of land and incest, The Favoured Child and Meridon in the 17th century; The Wise Woman, and A Respectable Trade, a novel of the slave trade in England, set in 18th-century Bristol. Not too surprising considering she has a PhD in 17th century literature.

The video is mostly about her writing and although interesting, I have to say I’m a bit disappointed it didn’t cover more about how she incorporates history into her novels and how to determine what to use and what to ignore.  As well as the risks of those decisions.
